Sorry there are no shows for Working right now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Theadora564 from A rollercoaster ride in 90min Very pleasant space. Easy to find and enthusiastic audience for a matinee. Vibrant and vivid cast - the young people excelled in the dance perspective. The older generation cast carried the show with stories from areas as diverse as truck drivers, airport hostess, teacher, fireman, care workers etc. A very enjoyable 90min show (without interval) for a decent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SandraHelmy from Awesome Show I went to this event with a friend and our expectations were outdone. It was a fun musical in a great, intimate environment. I really enjoyed the set out, scenes, amazing singing and feel of the show. It was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vivi G from A little gem of a musical! My son and I went for the musical, wondering about the new production running at a small theatre. But what an excellent show! In a suitably humble theatre that reflects the working class backdrop. Go catch it-- it will go places!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LindumImpus from Good show but no narrative thread Clever idea well presented. Singing all good, some outstanding, dancing ditto. A couple of actors a bit stage school over exaggerated expressions but overall really well acted. Live music from a decent band including some strings. Main issue was that there was no 'story' : it was a collection of vignettes strung together. It was entertaining, interesting and enjoyable but the lack of a narrative thread made it repeats of the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZCC from Brilliant really enjoyed it. It was a really clever way of telling the working person's stories in an engaging way. The cast was excellent and the music and musicians dovetailed in perfectly. The different tales are weaved in well together and the music, dance and props, you cared about the characters.

From the book by Studs Terkel Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso With additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg Songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers & Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor Working is the extraordinary genre-defining musical from Grammy and Academy Award winner STEPHEN SCHWARTZ (Wicked; Godspell) based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with the American workforce. This highly original and universal portrait of the American workday is told from the perspective of those that the world so often overlooks - the schoolteacher, the housewife, the fireman and the waitress amongst many - whose daily grind and aspirations reflect the truths of the people that make up a nation. Employing a range of musical styles and genres from contributing composers such as five-time Grammy Award winner JAMES TAYLOR and Pulitzer Prize winner LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA (Hamilton; In The Heights), Working makes for a strikingly dynamic and contemporary look at what it is to work and what it is to be a musical. Working receives its European premiere from Luke Sheppard, the acclaimed director of the Olivier Award-winning In The Heights.
