Amy's life as a receptionist is a rut of emails, ergonomics and endless unrealistic expectations. She smiles politely, makes the perfect cup of coffee and has a delightful phone manner. She spends her days tackling the big issues - like the optimal temperature of the air conditioning and how to ensure the coffee machine is being appropriately cleaned. Now on a journey to find another gluten-dairy-nut free cake for the big merger deal, Amy stops to wonder: is this her moment to escape to freedom or the beginning of her descent into corporate oblivion?

What did our critic think of IN HIS HANDS at Mosaic At Atlas Performing Arts Center? The world première of Benjamin Benne's In His Hands has opened at the Atlas Performing Arts Center while it's still Pride month.

This past Monday, I stood outside of a towering glass building, glancing from the map on my phone to the facade of the theater that almost glittered in the mid-afternoon sun. That's the entrance, right? Is that the right set of arts administration offices? As I passed my favorite sculpture in the plaza, I tossed my lipstick-stained coffee cup in the trash, looked over my resume one last time, and walked toward the glass doors tucked away behind a thick cluster of trees. This has to be it.
