Working, the Musical
August 24, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 5, 2021
Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the server, the millworker, the mason, and the stay-at-home parent, just to name a few.
Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor. This new version of Working is a musical exploration of twenty-six people from all walks of life. Its strength is in the core truths that transcend specific professions: how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself.
This production will be performed on the new outdoor stage in the sculpture garden at The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.
