Ever have one of those days where you feel like phoning it in?
Today’s one of those days for us. We’re on a beach and every letter we type harshes our mellow. Plus, it’s a holiday week for a lot of people anyway, so we know we’re not the only ones not wanting to work.
But speaking of jobs (and the privilege we know we have to be able to work from a beach), the musical Working: A Musical debuts today from Dallas Theater Center. It takes place outdoors in Annette Strauss Square at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, so make sure to read all the details on how to have the best experience.
The show features original songs by several talented songwriters, including Stephen Schwartz, Lin-Manuel Miranda and James Taylor, and features the actual words of real American workers from the book by Studs Terkel upon which the musical is based.
Teachers. Servers. Delivery drivers. Everyone with an essential job that doesn’t always hear praise gets their moment in the spotlight in this high-energy show.
But because we’re in this whole phoning-it-in phase, we’ll let this trailer of the show’s London production do the rest of the Working on our behalf.
