NJCU and WP programs present "Working, a Musical"

(JERSEY CITY NJ) -- The New Jersey City University Department of Music, Dance and Theatre and WP Voice presents Working, a Musical with five performances from February 2-11, 2024 at Margaret Williams Theatre. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews, Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day, the Musical Working paints a vivid portrait of the workers that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the delivery man, the waitress, the mason, and the stay-at-home parent, just to name a few.

This unique localized production of Working will also venture into our own communities, sharing the stories of those passionate individuals with whom we share a neighborhood. Real life interviews supply a lyrical narrative through song and dialogue, shining light on the lives of those who create community.

Nominated for six Tony Awards, this modern revision features songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, James Taylor, Micki Grant, and more.

Performances take place Friday, February 2 at 7:30pm; Saturday, February 3 at 7:30pm; Sunday, February 4 at 3:00pm; Saturday, February 10 at 7:30pm; and Sunday, February 11 at 3:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase online. The Margaret Williams Theatre is located at 2039 John F. Kennedy Boulevard (located within Hepburn Hall) in Jersey City, New Jersey.

The production is directed by Marc G. Dalio. The production team includes Musical Director John DiPinto, Choreographer Aliya Janov, Scenic and Lighting Designer Maruti Evans, Sound and Video Designer Paul Gargiulo.  The cast includes Nebula Vidal, Tatyana Serrato, Qawiyya Haqq, Gabrielle Stanowski, Vienne Voysey, Danielly Garcia, Katie Harrigan, Katrina Rada, Jay Jones, Matt Segovia, Joshua Rosenthal, Anthony Thompson, Byron Flores, Moses Garcia, Glenzell Baker, and Manny Encarnacion.
