The Watercoolers

Stage review from The Movie Snob

The Watercoolers. A friend and I saw this musical/sketch comedy at the Eisemann Center in Richardson last night. Its run ended today, which is a shame because I would have recommended it to all my friends. Five actors (three guys, two gals) sing and act out a series of skits making light of the absurdities of the modern American workplace. Subject matters include unhelpful IT departments, political correctness in the workplace, cubicle life, selling stuff to co-workers for your kids, the dreariness of economy air travel, and office paranoia about downsizing and lay-offs. Sure, the ground is rather well-plowed at this point, thanks to TV's The Office and comic strips like Dilbert. But the cast is appealing, the songs are lively, and the 90-minute show breezes by.
