WETA Around Town: WORKING – A Musical

Jane Horwitz and Trey Graham join host Robert Aubry Davis to discuss Working, A Musical at Keegan Theatre through May 13, 2012.

The Washington Post: WORKING – A Musical

Could there be a better moment to do “Working,” an audience-friendly revue of songs and monologues based on Studs Terkel’s 1974 book of interviews with American working folk?

DC Metro Theatre Arts: WORKING – A Musical

The Keegan Theatre brings to Washington the not-often performed musical, Working – A Musical, a show based on the well-known book of the same name from the 1970s by Studs Terkel that features a series of interviews with various American laborers talking about their jobs, lives and dreams.

Washingtonian: WORKING – A Musical

With close to a dozen men and women standing around and singing about their jobs; Working is like the reality television show of musicals (one of those classier ones on Discovery or the History Channel). And in a newly revised, post-recession Working, things get even more real.

A Washington Post Preview: WORKING

If writer Studs Terkel were alive today, Shirley Serotsky thinks he would have been in McPherson Square, or perhaps on Wall Street, rallying to the cause of the Everyman right along with the Occupiers.


Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, WORKING paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, and the housewife, just to name a few. With music written by a slate of amazing composers that include James Taylor, Lin Manuel-Miranda, and Stephen Schwartz, WORKING is a highly original look at the landscape of the American workplace, and how our careers inform and give meaning to our lives.
