Bristol Riverside Theatre, located at 120 Radcliffe Street, Bristol, Pa., is presenting Tony Award-nominated Working, through November 20. Based on Stud Terkel’s best-selling book which was written after interviewing twenty-six American workers, Working is both down-to-earth and fantasy driven. An extremely talented ensemble cast of Demetria Joyce Bailey, Philip Chaffin, Laura Giknis, Tamar Green, Jenny Lee Stern and Kevin Toniazzo-Naughton sing and dance their way through the life stories and aspirations of multiple people in the workplace, including a waitress, socialite,  a trucker and delivery boy. Under the direction of costume designer Linda Bee Stockton, cast members become entirely new characters with the slightest change by adding boots, changing a jacket, vest, or  top. Music and lyrics were written by six composers, adding to the mosaic intent of the piece. The projections designed by Andrew Deppen and John Hoey are phenomenal; the voices, both belting out solos and blending in rich harmonies are a feast for the ears; the quick costume changes are stunning in their simplicity; in short, everything about Working is working.
