First look: European premiere of Stephen Schwartz's Working

The musical features songs from the Wicked songwriter and Lin-Manuel Miranda


Production images have been released of Working which gets its European premiere at the Southwark Playhouse later this month.

Stephen Schwartz's musical is based on the book by Studs Terkels which contains interviews with ordinary American workers. The musical takes the audience through an average day from the perspective of these workers.

The piece is adapted by Schwartz and Nina Faso, with songs by Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers, Susan Birkenhead and James Taylor.

The cast features Peter Polycarpou (City of Angels), Krysten Cummings (Rent) and Liam Tamne (The Phantom of the Opera).
