Minimum Wage returns to NYC Fringe Theater Festival

Learn the art of spatulary, discuss the finer points of Post-Mustardism, perfect grill maintenance, and avoid the pitfalls of bathroom duty. Be on your way to Employee of the Month in this a cappella musical revue, a sort of “Fast Food Nation” as if it were performed by the Marx Brothers and Bobby McFerrin.
