Office Space: The Musical

Book and Lyrics by Greg Edwards, Music by Zak Sandler

Adapted from a Screenplay by Mike Judge

Based on the 1999 cult comedy, Office Space: The Musical tells the story of Peter Gibbons, a disgruntled office worker, who after a near-death-by-nacho experience, rejects the corporate world, lives by his own rules, and finds unexpected love and undeserved success along the way.

The Portuguese liked Goa so much that they conquered it in the 15th century, built a slew of cathedrals, and declared it a second Lisbon. The city proved less popular than they hoped, however, due to high taxes and bubonic plague. ~ India: Currying Favor
