What do Jamie Dimon, Lance Armstrong, Pope Francis and Bernie Madoff have in common? They all appear in Greed: A Musical for Our Times... Greed's musical comedy 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.
Michael Roberts is the author, composer and lyricist of the musicals Golf: The Musical and The Fartiste, which played Off-Broadway during the 2011-12 season and won the 2006 FringeNYC Best Musical Award.
