what the critics are saying

“Music that gets under your skin and stays there. Jet black, uncompromising and remarkable...a brilliant musical!”
–The New York Times

“The best musical of 2008!”
–Time Out New York

“A masterpiece of expressionism”

“As close to ideal as you can get”
–The New Yorker

“Provocative, daring and adventurous”
–Associated Press

“The cast album brings us the many splendors of the [original] production; all I can say is that after listening to the CD several times, I went rushing back downtown to see the show again.”

Adding Machine: A Musical
World Premiere Recording

ADDING MACHINE inspired some of the most rhapsodic reviews of the 200708 theatre season. Featuring a score by Joshua Schmidt and libretto by Jason Loewith and Mr. Schmidt, ADDING MACHINE is a darkly comic yet heartbreakingly beautiful adaptation of Elmer Rice's incendiary 1923 play. The astonishing score gives passionate and memorable voice to this stylish, stylized production, which follows Zero's journey all the way to the afterlife, where he is met with one last chance for romance and redemption. PS Classics' world premiere recording gives listeners a chance to experience a musical theatre of endless possibilities.
