Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, marked the opening of Jeffrey S. Miller’s tenth production to direct at Gordon when "Working, A Musical" took the stage in the Barrington Center for the Arts. The show runs throughout the week.
Miller, professor of theatre arts, was drawn to the musical based on a book by Studs Terkel, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, interviewer and historian, in large part because of the issue of jobs and work in today’s economy and election. ”Working” includes a cast/crew of 15 students, three musicians and countless alumni and staff who’ve worked hard in the process. Miller’s own work includes directing credits such as Macbeth, Guys and Dolls, Shadowlands, Tartuffe, The Secret Garden, An Evening of Pinter, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Joyful Noise, Into The Woods, Pirates of Penzance, and Growing Up Christians.
