According to a recent, widely reported medical study, sitting for long periods every day increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, even if you exercise regularly. In other words, it's not just your dreams that are dying in that cubicle. All the more reason to root for Peter Gibbons, the hero of New Millennium Theatre Company’s musical based on the 1999 cult film Office Space, as he fights his way back from corporate hell. But neither adapter Steven Attanasie, Jr, nor directors Laura Coleman and Sean Harklerode capture the soul-crushing monotony of the nine-to-five life or do much to earn laughs, apart from serving up the movie's memorable quotes. They don't bother to clarify the action, either. If I hadn't already seen the movie, I wouldn't have had any idea what was going on. Meagan Piccochi's songs are fun but few and far between. --Zac Thompson
