The great author, broadcaster and journalist Studs Terkel touched a nerve in 1974 when he published "Working", an oral history of real people and the jobs they performed. From sanitation truck drivers to professional athletes, the book gave voice to a sweepingly diverse cross-section of American life and was subsequently adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical of the same name. Now that you're hooked on seeing it, prepared to be reeled in -- the "Working" musical was recently updated with new songs by "Hamilton" impresario Lin-Manuel Miranda, adding a whole new level of clout and resonance for the modern age, and it's coming to the Umbrella Annex in Concord. See it and be powerfully reminded that though there is much that divides us, we are all school teachers, millworkers, waitresses and masons. We are all united by the need to work, and to find meaning in the work that we do. [less-]
