River View Observer “Best Pick”
Local Theater Performance
April 23-May 9
LY BEATTY / JENNY FERSCH / MARK DUNN
ERIN FLANAGAN ES E. SPLOND
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm; Thursdays, April 29 and May 6 at 7pm. ms, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of “common” men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It’s a highly original look at the American landscape that’s simply impossible to forget.

A classic, comic,”who-done-it” with a twist. The first few minutes are Mad-Libs® style, where the audience provides key nouns, verbs and adjectives – all of which the cast then incorporates in the telling of the tale.
