This classic musical is based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews exploring how American workers' relationships to their work ultimately reveal essential aspects of their humanity. The original production was nominated for six Tony Awards. It was updated for the modern age in 2012 and is as relevant today as when it first appeared on Broadway.
Working: A Musical will be performed without an intermission.
The theater is handicap-accessible. Please e-mail us at email@example.com after purchasing your tickets so that we can be sure to reserve you an accessible seat and provide you with directions for entering the theater.

The St. Jean's Players was founded in the 1970's at St. Jean Baptiste Church at Lexington Avenue and 76th Street. For several years, we performed in the St. Jean's high school auditorium on 75th Street. Over the years, the group performed in several other locations and under several different names, including the Einhorn Players at Lenox Hill Hospital, and the MAP Players at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church.
In 1991 we returned to St. Jean's and became the St. Jean's Players. In 2020, we became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the name On With The Show, Inc., doing business as The St. Jean’s Players.
