The Adding Machine
"The Adding Machine" is a darkly comic, expressionistic voyage through the life, execution, and rebirth of Mr. Zero, a low-level accountant whose life is forever altered when, after 35 years at the same company, he discovers he's being replaced by a mechanical adding machine.

The theme of being pushed aside in favor of a more economical machine to maximize profits is as relevant today as when Elmer Rice first wrote the play in 1923. Rice went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for his 1929 play, "Street Scene," which was later turned into an opera with music by Kurt Weill. "The Adding Machine" was made into a movie in 1969, and turned into a musical that premiered Off-Broadway in 2008.

The show is produced by the same GTC production team that created "Eternal Equinox" (premiered at GTC Burbank in 2009 and re-staged in an acclaimed Off-Broadway production at the 59e59 Theater earlier this year), "Blakeda Musical!"  (Ovation Award for Best New Musical), and "Film Chinois"  (Ovation Award for Best New Play).
