In the last corporation on the planet, everything is great and everybody’s happy. But when an outsider arrives and starts asking questions, the office's fragile equilibrium starts to rupture. Driven by a thrilling original electro-folk-funk score, IN CORPO is a zany, audacious new musical about human connection, the seductions of technology, and what to do when the system lets you down.

World premiere June 21 - July 8 at Theatre Row!

Tues-Wed at 7pm | Thurs-Sat at 8pm | Sun at 3pm | & 2pm Sat 7/8

Tickets on sale now!

IN CORPO draws freely from Franz Kafka’s The Castle, Herman Melville’s "Bartleby the Scrivener" and the artists' own experiences negotiating hellish bureaucracies and corporate “day jobs.” The common thread: a deep interest in the individual’s relationship to forces that curtail autonomy and limit self-expression, as well as the ways employees
adapt to and against these forces.

"IN CORPO is the kind of innovative musical that reassures us of the continuing vitality of the musical theater genre...a brilliantly clever whirlwind of song, dance, mind-reading, surveillance, robots, a randy computer, and incipient love... Smart, soulful and truly original."

– Jon Sobel, BlogCritics

A colorful, funny, intelligent, and insightful lampoon of where we’re headed and why we shouldn’t go there. It’s a great message for audiences sharing the communal experience of live theater, delivered by the company with wacky humor and outstanding harmonies and musicianship.
