Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar:

Adding Machine: A Musical
March 18 – May 15, 2016
Directed by Geoff Button

Mr. Zero, a modern-day everyman, hates his wife, he hates his job, he hates his lot in life. After twenty-five years spent adding figures for the same company, he comes to work one day only to find he’s been replaced by a machine. Beleaguered and broken, Zero’s journey takes him to confounding places both here and in the afterlife as he struggles to believe that his life will ever amount to something. Adding Machine: A Musical is an expressionistic tale of love, murder, and salvation.
