In today’s economy the new top currency is not money but power and in Daylabor Dreamin’ it’s not easy pinpointing who is really in control – and whether that power is used for good or evil.
The multicultural cast had a hand in writing the sketches and it shows with issues of race, immigration status and even socioeconomic class making it to the stage. But it’s done in a funny and irreverent way that never strays into preachy territory.
The show also touches on technology and the ever present role it plays in our lives. Including the use of video for a couple of the sketches. This theme is shown through a slightly skewed lens where things are mostly not what they seem – taking the audience along for a laugh.
The premise of the show is interesting and funny although the execution is slightly uneven. The actors started the night off a bit rough with a lack of tightness to the first couple of sketches. But its the actors who rally to save some of the less engaging scenes with outstanding comedic timing. Overall there’s more hits then misses in Daylabor Dreamin’ with the show quickly picking up steam and laughs. The second half of the show flies by leaving you wanting more. A show definitely worth checking out.
