WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Elmer Rice's expressionistic masterpiece re-imagined in a stunning new musical! After losing his job to a machine, Mr. Zero's monotonous life swirls into chaos. With jangling, percussive music reflecting period influences - including early-20th-century modernists, Tin Pan Alley and gospel - this work conjures a vision of American life in the 1920s at odds with that decade's popular image as a happy-go-lucky era ended only by the Depression. It is a vision that feels eerily in tune with our own unsettled economy. Adding Machine: A Musical is by Joshua Schmidt and Jason Loewith, and directed by Loewith.
