Drum Machine is Jill Bernard's award-winning one-person unscripted musical featuring multiple characters in scenes, monologues and songs accompanied by the mad beats of the Zoom-Rhythmtrak 123 which Bernard calls "nature's finest drum machine." The show opens with an audience interview that is woven into a suggested historical period.
