BWW Review: Rollins' Students Shine in True-to-Life Musical, WORKINGBWW Review: Rollins' Students Shine in True-to-Life Musical, WORKING
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 2, 2014

As its opening song, and the Walt Whitman poem from which it was inspired, says, WORKING is all about the 'varied carols' of working Americans. For nearly four decades, this musical has been celebrating the high (and low) lights of the American workforce.
