What happens when you put Jamie Dimon, Lance Armstrong, Pope Francis and Bernie Madoff all on the same stage? No, not the worst ever cast of The View. You get Greed: A Musical for Our Times, beginning performances March 19 at New World Stages—Stage 2.
Greed, written by Michael Roberts and directed by Christopher Scott, explores the sin we can’t seem to get away from. The show tackles everything from Ponzi schemes to the not-so-subtle sales pitches of retirement planners and mortgage bundlers. With numbers such as “A Little Juice” and “I’ll Cheat On My Taxes,” Greed takes aim at the obvious, and not so obvious, targets.
The cast features Tony Award nominee Stephanie D’Abruzzo, as well as Julia Burrows, James Donegan and Neal Mayer. Greed officially opens April 3.
