Medicine Show Theatre to Present Revival of 1819 Comedy Wall Street: A Farce in Three Acts
Barbara Vann directs the comedy, which was first written and performed in 1819 to coincide with the financial panic of that year. The cast includes David Elyha, David Goldyn, Beth Griffith, Richard Gross, Howah Hung, Evan Kaplan, Richard Keyser, Gulshan Mia, Eva Nicole, Jon Okabayashi, and Dieter Riesle.
The 90-minute work will feature songs from the past and present written by the likes of Stephen Foster, Woodie Guthrie, and Leonard Cohen. At certain shows, Zachary James and Rock Wilk will be on hand to perform songs, and Greg Palast will be on hand to read and field questions.
