The original Working was based on a best-selling book of the same name by legendary Chicago talk show host Studs Terkel who, in 1974, interviewed everyday people — from cashiers to firemen to stone masons — about the work they did and how they felt about it.
The ensuing show, based on the book, featured a child who delivered newspapers in his neighborhood. When he was 14, Craig portrayed the newsboy in a community theatre production of the show. So, we sent him to report on Main Street Theater's new production, which nixes some jobs in favor of more modern work. We have to wonder, in the age of the Internet, did the newsboy make the cut?
