July 11 – 14, 2013 TheaterLAB, New York
When an inquisitive small-town reporter investigates the experiments of a mad scientist just outside the city limits, he makes an alarming discovery: a robot designed to bring about the end of the human race. However, the robot is more interested in composing and performing pop music than doing its creator’s bidding. Robot Songs is a comedic exploration of humanity’s relationship with technology as well as with itself, and the future of our evolution.
