FOCUS TODAY casts the audience as employees of the fictional firm Ninetech Incorporated who are spending their weekend at a “voluntary” motivational seminar. Three “success experts” use “Broadway-style” musical numbers to bring the one-word principles expounded on motivational posters to singing, dancing life. In the end, the audience’s workbook scores make them bears, monkeys, big cats – or unemployed.
