The Corporate Circus, Inc. (www.thecorporatecircus.com) and Rob Appel Productions (www.appelpresents.com) have teamed-up to produce a musical theater workshop of a new “corporate musical” based on Adela JP’s book, The Corporate Circus, a uniquely original and innovatively creative 5 Star book-based property written as a fantasy style “tongue-in-cheek” corporate satire. Adela JP (pen name of Adela Josue Polin), author and creator of The Corporate Circus, is an MBA whose corporate experience led to the writing of The Corporate Circus as an entertainingly satiric look at corporate life and office drama in an animated setting.
The Corporate Circus musical will be part of this year’s San Diego Repertory 30th Pre-Gala Anniversary Celebration. This show is scheduled to premier at the Lyceum Theatre in San Diego, California on March 30 through April 2nd, 2006 for 6 performances. Attendance will be by invitation only.

About The Corporate Circus book: (www.thecorporatecircus.com/book.htm)
The Corporate Circus, Inc. is signing a book deal in China early this year with one of China’s premier publishing houses in Shanghai. The book will be translated into Chinese and will be marketed as a corporate culture with a circus metaphor and distributed in major book chains in China.
"The Corporate Circus book” has been awarded a 5 Star rave review by Midwest Book Review describing the story as, “a bizarre and fantastic tale told almost entirely in dialogue, with each corporate lackey player represented as an animal. "The Corporate Circus," by Adela JP offers the reader a genuinely fantastic interplay of office politics and an original "tongue-in-cheek" satire. Humorous, witty, and engagingly presented, The Corporate Circus is highly recommended reading which leaves a marked impression of business that combines the exotic with the all-too-real."
