Smart bets web extra: “The Temps”

Juggling troupe Forty Fingers & A Missing Tooth has moved beyond sideshow fare and onto its first full-length stage production: The Temps. A bit about the show:

“Despite being forced into modern day indentured servitude (a.k.a. ‘temping’), they still find a way to bring the mundane hum of 9 to 5 employment to an improbable crescendo. From the morning wake-up routine to the after work karaoke jam, the temps skillfully navigate the labyrinth of cubicles, irrational bosses, and mandatory team building exercises by transforming everyday office situations into moments of pure delight.”

The Temps runs at The Magnetic Field, Thursdays-Saturdays, June 14-16 and 21-23. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. (all nights) and 10 p.m. (Fridays and Saturday). $15 for early shows; $12 late shows.
