The Strollers community theater presents Working, A Musical, from the book by Studs Terkel; adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso with additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg; with songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, James Taylor, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Stephen Schwartz.A musical that will ring true to anyone whos ever collected a paycheck, Working is based on a series of interviews conducted by noted author and broadcaster Studs Terkel. Through monologue as well as music, the show conveys the stories of a collection of workers who earn their keep doing everything from teaching to truck driving and millwork to masonry. First staged in Chicago in 1977, Working debuted on Broadway (directed by Stephen Schwartz) the next year; decades later, an update of the show led to the addition of music from artists such as famed Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.The production will be presented for three weekends at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts, 10 Durand Road in Maplewood: Friday, November 8, 15, and 22 and Saturday, November 9, 16, and 23 at 8:00 pm; and Sunday, November 10 and 17 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students and senior citizens. Visit for information and to purchase tickets, or call 973-761-8453 to reserve tickets.
