Stephen Schwartz' lively musical is back

Why See Working?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

Featuring Songs From Lin-Manuel Miranda

The New York City Center's series of Off-Broadway revivals returns with Stephen Schwartz's Working. Based on a book by Studs Terkel, this lively musical follows a cast of characters as they go about their work, from steelworkers to teachers. They expound on both the highs and lows of the work, building a portrait of America like no other. It was first staged in Chicago in 1977, before moving to Broadway the following, with a cast that included Patii LuPone. 

This 2019 production revives the latest version of the show, which features two songs from Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as numbers from James Taylor, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Susan Birkenhead.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

The laugh-out-loud funniest musical of the Broadway season. Yes it's another tune-filled spin on a hit movie...but this one is actually good
