Adding Machine: A Musical archiveEver feel like killing your boss? After 25 long years spent adding figures in the same soul-crushing job, Mr Zero suddenly finds himself replaced by a machine. For the first time in his life, Zero takes his destiny into his own hands. The consequences set him on a path through this world and beyond, offering him one last chance for love, life and redemption. Take an extraordinary journey with Mr Zero in this stirring and hilariously dark anti-musical as it asks us to consider the true price of a human soul, told through Joshua Schmidt's haunting score, inspired by gospel, opera, jazz and rock and roll.


Music: Joshua Schmidt
Lyrics(s): Jason Loewith, Joshua Schmidt (based on the play The Adding Machine by Elmer Rice)
