Originally produced at the 2002 New York Fringe, Minimum Wage is back and I’m glad because I didn’t catch its quickly sold-out original engagement. The premise is that five employees of Happy Burger are training new employees the Big Brother-like fast food chain. The vocal talent of the cast, performing the hilarious acappella score, is unbelievable. The show has some very creatively silly choreography and bizarre Orwellian video interruptions. Written by Charlie and Jeff LaGreca (who also perform in the show) along with Sean Altman, this is basically a ninety-minute one-joke sketch, but much of that joke is very funny.
Fringe Rating: 7 (out of 10)
