From the book by Studs Terkel, written by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, with additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg, Working includes songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz, and James Taylor. Orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.

Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, the musical Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the mill-worker, the mason and the housewife, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age.

Portraying the various real-life people that Terkel interviewed are a variety of Meadow Brook favorites and newcomers, including Katie Akers, Tyler Bolda, Cory Cunningham, Emily Hadick, Kim Rachelle Harris, Gregory Rodriguez, Yemie Sonuga and Ron Williams. Working is directed by Travis W. Walter with choreography by Debbie Williams. Terry W. Carpenter is the stage manager with scenic design by Brian Kessler, costume design by Liz Goodall, lighting design by Scott Ross and sound design by Mike Duncan.

The band is lead by musical director Michael Rice, who also plays the keyboard. Sig Hepler plays guitar with Andrew Toering on bass and Brian Buckmaster on percussion.
