APRIL 29–MAY 9, 2021 | VIRTUAL
Based upon Studs Terkel’s 1974 bestseller, Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, Working: A Musical shares actual workers’ words from the book and gives voice to their hopes and aspirations through music by Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, Micki Grant, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others. Each person – trucker, waitress, stay-at-home mom, hedge fund manager, laborer, millworker, project manager, delivery person, and more – have a unique story to tell.
The musical has undergone several revisions since its premiere in 1977 and on Broadway in 1978. CATCO will present the 2012 Revised Version with updated text and new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The Sunday, May 9 performance will contain open captions.
