About this show

Tampa's Jobsite Theater presents Maxwell, a new rock musical by Joe Popp. The show tells the story of Joseph Maxwell, a prodigal genius born to working-class parents who, under the tutelage of Stephen Hawking, devises a plan to end mankind's need to work, starve, suffer or toil with the introduction of his Maxwell Machines - a new invention carrying the most complex algorithm mankind has ever known. Problems arise once society becomes disillusioned and bored due to the Maxwell Machines invasion of every sector of life. Joseph Maxwell becomes caught up in his own power and glory as the play moves forward until the people - aided by Maxwell's best friend and girlfriend - rebel to overthrow the machines and Maxwell's new regime.
