Opening this Weekend: Working at Foothill Music Theatre

I've had the music for the musical "Working" for years and sung many a song (and heard others sing many a song) from it. But unbelievably: I've never actually seen it performed.

I have the chance to change that over the next 3 weeks because Foothill Music Theatre is performing it now through March 6th.

It's a show about working people and I have a feeling it's going to resonate pretty strongly during these difficult economic times.
And seriously, if you don't know the music? Great music by the likes of Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, Craig Carnelia and more.

Here are the deets:

WHAT: Working, the Stud Terkel musical
WHERE: Foothill Music Theatre at Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills, CA
WHEN: 2/18-3/6. 8PM Thursdays/Fridays, 2PM and 8PM Saturdays, 2PM Sundays
HOW MUCH: $26 General Admission, with discounts for students, seniors and staff
Phone: 650-949-7414
