Receiving six Tony Award nominations, WORKING opened at the 46th Street Theatre (now the Richard Rodgers) in 1978 and played twenty-four performances. The score was written by Susan Birkenhead, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, and in 2009, Lin Manuel Miranda contributed two new songs to the musical. WORKING is based off of Studs Terkel's acclaimed 1974 book Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day And How They Feel About What They Do.
WORKING features some of the musical theatre's most iconic songs including "It's An Art" "If I Could've Been," "Just A Housewife," " Fathers And Sons," and so many more.
Schneider said, "WORKING is one of musical theatre's most powerful works because it finds poetry in places you would least expect it and celebrates our humanity with an optimism that is infectious. WORKING reminds its audiences that each and every one of us is connected by our desire to do good in this world and contribute something that will positively affect our fellow citizens, which is a message that is always welcomed."
Tickets, starting at $30, are still available. In addition to the ticket price, there is food and beverage minimum of $25.00 54 SINGS WORKING tickets can be purchased at 54below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551
