Who said material wealth was overrated? Greed: A Musical for Our Times opens officially on April 3 at New World Stages. The show is written by Michael Roberts and directed by Christopher Scott.
What do Jamie Dimon, Lance Armstrong, Pope Francis and Bernie Madoff have in common? They all appear in Greed. 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, offenders.
The cast of Greed includes Tony nominee Stephanie D’Abruzzo, Julia Burrows, James Donegan and Neal Mayer. Broadway.com wishes them all a happy opening as they prove that some deadly sins can, in fact, be fun.
