Working (2012), to be presented by Wellesley College Theatre November 15 – 19, is a musical story updated from 1978 with 2 new songs from Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, and directed by Nora Hussey, this lively show presents the age-old question of what defines us as humans. The answer unfolds in the workdays of people from all walks of life, that an occupation is more than just a job for the average working American.
The Wellesley College student cast portrays workers across the spectrum of class and culture in American life: we are presented with the bar pianist, a waitress, a salesman, a corporate executive, and a steelworker, to name a few.
