Money Talks - 2017 - Off-Broadway

They say money talks... and this money has a lot to say! as The Man on the hundred, Ben is not pleased by what he sees in America today and he's done keeping his mouth shut. Over the course of this 90-minute musical comedy, Ben is passed from a hedge fund manager to a stripper, to a judge, to his mistress who's a nun to ... well, you get the idea. Armed with a lifetime of famous sayings, Ben must convince everyone to change their priorities before it's too late. Inspired by the writings of Ben Franklin, the play La Ronde, and the huge mess America is in today, Money Talks is a fast-paced madcap romp filled with life, liberty and laughs for all.

Ah, just when we need it the most, here is the perfect tonic for our troubled times! The Marsh is bringing back comedic legend Geoff Hoyle in his latest work 'What Will I Be When You Grow Up?' Presented for one night only on Saturday, March 20th at 7:00PM PDT, this filmic version of Hoyle's show will be followed by a live post-performance Q&A with The Marsh Founder/Artistic Director Stephanie Weisman. Visit The www.themarsh.org for more information. Born and raised in England before coming to America in the 1970a??s, Hoyle has had a fascinating career and at this point has become a veritable Bay Area institution. After first coming to local attention as part of the Pickle Family Circus, he went on to perform with Cirque du Soleil, create the role of Zazu in the original Broadway company of The Lion King, act in plays at virtually all the major Bay Area theater companies, and create numerous solo shows, many of them at The Marsh. BroadwayWorld recently caught up with Hoyle by phone from his home in Inverness, California.
