Despite a superb cast and a valiant effort, Blank Canvas’ production of “Working: The Musical” is as tedious as the jobs this one-act ode to the ordinary American worker tries to champion.

WORKING is the type of theatrical experience that is both purposeful and entertaining.  The message is clear, the lyrics and spoken words meaningful.  This is a well performed, meticulously conceived, and fine production under the creative powers of Pat Ciamacco.

Good voices, strong impersonations enhanced by Luke Scattergood's high-definition costumes, and Patrick Ciamacco's well-paced direction and smooth transitioning keep the episodic format from growing stale, though the uninterrupted show runs a tad long.
Director Ciamacco says he chose this show because "it's a perfect musical for our city and what the country is going through today." I agree.

BC’s six-person cast under the compassionate direction of Patrick Ciamacco presents more than two dozen distinctive people in different jobs. The songs, by a variety of composers, vary in quality but are often quite touching.

Battery Park’s Blank Canvas Theatre has taken a late 1970’s musical, updated it, localized it, and put together a cast that is some of the very best non-union talent Cleveland has to offer. As it says in the show’s tagline, this truly is “The perfect musical for everyone who has ever worked a day in their lives,” and that is you!
