This is a new reworking of a piece that Stephen Schwartz (best known for WICKED) adapted from a book by Studs Terkel.  The book and libretto is largely taken from Studs’ interviews with regular people about their relationship to their work.  The music is great.  The cast is great.  The production is great.  Try and come see it!
