            "Working, The Musical," which is based on the novel by Studs Terkel, focuses on people from all walks of life sharing their stories about their jobs through song. The diversity of the characters emphasizes the changing dynamics in American society. The show ran on Broadway and became an American classic on national tour.

            The performance is directed by guest artist Nora Cole. Cole has directed previous shows at Eastern, including "The Head of Mary," "America, Hurrah!" and "The Black Girl in Search of God."
