Following a successful tour to Germany’s VOICES OF CHANGE Festival (Bielefeld, Berlin), New York theatre company WOLF 359 bring their hit RIGHTEOUS MONEY to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Dishing out advice on deal making, stock buying and sleeping with your assistant, a sexually rapacious and insanely rich TV provocateur takes on the tanking economy. In this solo financial tour de force, host CJ takes us on a tour of distressed investing, financial derivatives, and the inside of the banker's soul, all in a quest to make Righteous Money. But what begins as a send-up of financial gurus and shady I-bankers becomes a searing exploration of the fiscal crisis and the state of America today. www.RighteousMoney.tv [more inside]

Souvenirs of Home - a play at Summerworks

If you're in Toronto, you might be reading some press on the Summerworks Festival which is undergoing a bit of controversy due to their programming. (Enough kerfuffle to make a FPP, which I can't do, but you can!) In any case, I am performing in the Canadian premiere of a new play called Souvenirs of Home by Elyne Quan at the festival. Come, if you can. It's a lovely piece with a fresh point-of-view from a skilled writer. $10, various times. Here's the poster! Here's a preview piece! [more inside]
