Off-Broadway's 'GREED' to Close 4/19 at New World Stages
Greed: A Musical for Our Times, written by Michael Roberts and directed by Christopher Scott with music direction & arrangements by Steven Gross, will end its Off-Broadway, open-ended premiere engagement at New World Stages/Stage 2 (340 West 50th Street) on Saturday April 19th. Greed: A Musical for Our Times is presented Off-Broadway by Eric Krebs.
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.
Remaining performances are Wednesday evenings at 7pm, Thursday and Saturday evenings at 8PM. Tickets range from $40 - $65, with Premium Seats at $99 and Super Premium at $499 (hey - it's called GREED!); Rush Seats ($30 @ 30 minutes before the show) are also available at the box office only for all performances.
