    Thank you for this review. You mention a folk song that was sung midway in lieu of an intermission. That was confusing to me. As I recall there was indeed a song that she asked the audience to sing along with, the lyrics to which were something like “Don’t let your baby go, don’t let your baby go to Olivar.” If that’s what you were thinking of, that song is actually Olivar Blues and it refers to an element of the plot of the show.

    A company called KSF has taken over a nearby coastal city called Olivar.
    KSF has basically privatized the town: the people get jobs and help and defense from the company, but it’s basically company town slavery.
