Michael Roberts’ Greed: A Musical for Our Times, is to have its off-Broadway premiere. Directed by Christopher Scott and starring Tony nominee Stephanie D'Abruzzo, the show will begin performances at New World Stages—Stage 2 on March 19. Opening Night is set for April 3.
What do Jamie Dimon, Lance Armstrong, Pope Francis and Bernie Madoff have in common? They all appear in Greed: A Musical for Our Times. The musical comedy's targets range from Ponzi schemes to the not-so-subtle sales pitches of retirement planners and mortgage bundlers. With numbers like “A Little Juice,” “Inside Information,” “I'll Cheat On My Taxes” and “The Ballad of Jamie Dimon,” Greed takes aim at the obvious, and not so obvious, targets.
D’Abruzzo received a Tony nod for Avenue Q. She will be joined in the cast by Julia Burrows, James Donegan and Neal Mayer.
