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 After twenty-five years spent adding figures for the same company, he comes to work one day only to find he's been replaced by a machine.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.
The production team for ADDING MACHINE: A Musical includes: Lauren Nigri (scenic design), Izumi Inaba (costume design), Mike Durst (lighting design), Joe Court and Brandon Reed (sound design), Eleanor Kahn (properties design), Ellen Morris (associate music director), Amanda Kroiss (associate choreographer), Pat Fries (production manager), Jacob Palmer (technical director), Justine Palmisano (stage manager) and Tristan Chiruvolu (asst. stage manager).
