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

For nearly four decades, this musical has been celebrating the high (and low) lights of the American workforce. Conceived and adapted by Stephen Schwartz (GODSPELL, WICKED) and Nina Faso, the show employs no fictional characters, instead, it draws from real-life individuals and the stories that they told legendary author and historian Studs Terkel for his book of the same name. The Rollins College production of the musical, running now through Saturday, October 4th at the Annie Russell Theatre is a joyful, if not over-stuffed, examination of this ultimately uplifting material.
