Music: Joshua Schmidt. Lyrics: Joshua Schmidt and Jason Loewith. Underground Productions, Qld Uni Drama Society. Co-Directors: Samuel Boyd and John Vizcay-Wilson. Schonell Theatre, Qld University. September 4 – 13, 2014.
Adding Machine: A Musicalis another avant-garde production from Underground Productions and, in keeping with previous offerings, is far from main stream theatre.
The co-directors of this piece describe it as deeply complex and I have to agree with them.
The cast of 13 worked as a solid unit on a revolving set using rear projection in lieu of conventional scenery.
In an ensemble piece such as this, there were no weak performances.
