Part of the Inaugural Season


The schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, and the housewife are among the many characters who offer a unique look at the American landscape as told by the men and woman who punch a time clock every day. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, and featuring the music of James Taylor, the play will surprise and inspire with a vivid portrait of the hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of "common" men and women who work to earn a living.

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

Most enjoyable for mature audiences; adult situations and themes; parental guidance recommended for children under 13.
