Based on the book by Chicago-based author Studs Terkel, with music by songwriters including Micki Grant, James Taylor, Stephen Schwartz, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, the voices of a multitude of lived experiences come together to create a never-before-seen production that brings dignity to workers in our community and across the nation by honoring their stories.
