Lots of stories take the lead from "zero to hero," but Adding Machine: A Musical goes in an altogether darker direction. Declared "a landmark of American Expressionism" by Playbill, Elmer Rice's prescient play is now a heartbreaking musical. Set in a world familiar to fans of Orwell's 1984, Ridley's Blade Runner and Gilliam's Brazil, protagonist "Zero" -- an accountant for a large, faceless company -- discovers that he is being replaced by a machine. In anger and pain, he snaps and kills his (non-mechanical) boss, kick-starting an evocative tale of murder, oppression and salvation. Now The Hypocrites, one of Chicago's most lauded theater companies, brings this off-Broadway hit back to Chicago for a brilliant new production directed by Jeff nominee Geoff Button.
