Working (2012 updated version)
Adaptation by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso Directed by Nora Hussey
Opens November 15 @ 7pm
Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre in Alumnae Hall
Working (2012) is a musical story updated from 1978 with 2 new songs from Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. In this lively show, the age-old question of what defines us as humans unfolds in the workdays of people from all walks of life, proving 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.
The design team includes: Nora Hussey: Director; Jenny Tang: Music Director; David Towlun: Set Designer/Production Manager; Chelsea Kerl: Costume Designer; Jonathan Carr: Production Designer; Graham Edmondson: Lighting Designer; George Cooke: Sound Designer; Kendra Cui: Choreographer; Olivia Feldman: Stage Manager; Lilly Strieder: Public Relations
