Not a workers' paradise


May 13, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

If you've ever felt those "take-this-job-and-shove-it" blues, you might drop in on Richard Dresser's "Below the Belt," at AXIS Theatre. This darkly comic take on corporate hell is guaranteed to make almost any job look better by comparison. But you have to be quick about it; this is the last chance to catch the play's Baltimore premiere.

Mark E. Campion plays the boss, and Steve Sawicki and Larry Malkus are his unfortunate employees, under Brian Klaas' direction. Joel Shepherd's ambitious set design is influenced by the movie "Brazil." Playwright Dresser was one of the writers for the sitcom "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd."

Show times at AXIS, 3600 Clipper Mill Road, are 8 p.m. today through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 and $14. Call 410-243-5237.
