Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do

A musical based on the 1974 book by Studs Terkel


With additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg

Directed by Joe Zingo

Work. Everybody does it. Some jobs might last a day, some a few years and some a lifetime. Some work is paid, some isn't. There are millions of different jobs yet they all have one thing in common: whatever it is, it's somebody's work. The Pulitzer Prize winning author, actor and historian Studs Terkel, got people to open up to him about their jobs, and how their work has affected their lives and shaped their world. This amazing book of interviews was an enormous best seller in it's day, shining a light on what people do for work long before LinkedIn or Glassdoor. WORKING inspired Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Wicked) to create a new musical based on the book and WORKING soon became a collaboration with multiple lyricists and writers, including James Taylor and Lin-Manuel Miranda. WORKING opened on Broadway in 1978.

Some words about our health

Covid is still around and just as contagious as ever. You can be vaxed, get Covid, show no symptoms and pass it on to someone who could really suffer. It's sneaky and killing people every day. We require that everyone attending Actors Cabaret provide proof of vaccination before entering the theater and wear masks unless eating or drinking. We ask that you remain mindful that our actors are volunteers and taking a risk to their own health by performing in WORKING and that there may be last minute casting changes or substitutions so we can protect the health of our volunteer performers.

Thank YOU from ACE

First and most, thank you. Thank you for seeing the shows, buying the tickets, wearing your masks and getting the Covid poke. Thanks to the actors for setting aside hours and hours of rehearsal, thanks to the crew for doing the same, and thanks to our patrons who never lost hope and have been patiently waiting for lasagna.Your day has arrived!
