Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the server, the millworker, the mason, and the stay-at-home parent, just to name a few.
Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor. This new version of Working is a musical exploration of twenty-six people from all walks of life. Its strength is in the core truths that transcend specific professions: how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself.
August 13th – October 17th

This is no ordinary art exhibition. Created by Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive, a large-scale, COVID-Safe, multi-sensory digital art experience, gives visitors the unique opportunity to immerse themselves into Van Gogh’s artistry and truly venture into his world. Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational. Adults and children delight in the super-scale show, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. But don’t just take their word for it: experience it for yourself!
