WORKING is based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American Workers, adapted by Stephen Schwarz (Wicked, Godspell) and Nina Faso. The KCP production is directed by Ross Martineau with musical direction by Arnold Meister. WORKING paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, and the housewife, just to name a few. WORKING is a musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life. Both funny and touching, the strength of the show is in the core truths that transcend specific professions; the key is how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal significant aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself. With 12 of Kauai’s finest singer-actors.
