Working, the Play

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

About forty years ago I read a wonderful book by Studs Terkel called Working. I don't know why I chose it but it has stayed with me always and last night I saw a revival of a play based on this book. The original play was done in 1977. The revival I saw, in my neighborhood no less, included music written by Lin-Manual Miranda, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Stephen Schwartz, and James Taylor. 

I am so glad I went to see this and the impact was palpable. I can only say if you ever get a chance to see this....go. If not the book is still worth reading. Some things are just timeless, poignant and delightful all. My pick for today is Working.

I think Lin-Manual Miranda is a modern day musical miracle.  I would love seeing anything that features his wonders.

Morning Sheila.

Never heard of the book or the play. I wonder, is the book still in publication?
