What Is the Story of Enron?
Enron follows the astounding rise and fall of the Enron corporation. The Texas-based energy company ascended to great heights (and a staggering stock price) before declaring bankruptcy in 2001 amid one of the largest financial scandals in history. By focusing on the transformation of the company’s president Jeffrey Skilling—from intelligent schlub to charismatic leader—the show illustrates how the whole mess unfurled. Other real-life players, such as Enron CEO Kenneth Lay and CFO Andy Fastow, are highlighted in this play with music, and some of their dialogue is true to life as well. If you’ve ever wondered how Enron managed to deceive its 20,000 employees, Wall Street and the public, this show will explain it all to you in a way that does not at all resemble a boring lecture.
