THE PLAY: Musical | This examination of 26 people from all walks of life proves that it’s more than just a job for the average working American. Nominated for 6 TONY Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age. “The musical’s celebration of even the most seemingly marginal contributions as intrinsic elements of nation-building gives it stirring resonance. Working has been called the non-showbiz counterpart to A Chorus Line.” – The New York Times
Please bring in a prepared selection from a Broadway or Broadway style musical which shows off your range, is age appropriate, and displays your ability to sell a song.
Roles available for actor/singers in a wide range of ages and ethnicities to play 26 workers, including a parking lot attendant, corporate executive, schoolteacher, gas man, housewife, fireman, waitress, millworker, sailor, etc., who sing and talk about their jobs, defining not only their daily round, but their hopes and aspirations as well.
