Spotlights Theater Presents “Working” (Feb. 23 – March 3)


Spotlights Theater presents “Working”

Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, “Working” paints a vivid portrait of the workers that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife just to name a few.

Nominated for six Tony Awards in 1978, this classic has been updated for a modern age.

“Working” is the Broadview Heights Spotlights’ Annual Coffee House production featuring a complimentary beverage bar (non-alcoholic) sponsored by Caruso’s Coffee. Several luscious desserts will also be available for purchase sponsored, in part, by Creekside Restaurant.

The show runs Feb. 23-March 3. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at and at 3 p.m. on Sundays. All shows will be held at Spotlights Theater, 9543 Broadview Rd., Bldg. 22 (on the Broadview Heights city campus next to the police department). For tickets, visit the Spotlights’ website,

Jackson, Paul Josell, Victoria Kirgesener-Hunsicker, Lindsay MacLeod, Peggy Newton, Theresa Pedone, and Jennifer Rizzi.
