New York City
After a long hiatus, Merle Kessler brings fast-talking satirist Ian Shoales back to the stage to take a cold look at the century so far. He is joined by long-time collaborator, composer J. Raoul Brody (with some special guests), and – PowerPoint (TM)! Harrowing and hilarious, Broke will skewer everything in its path – including self-help lingo, success seminars, political animals, reality television, the so-called war and the ongoing celebrity meltdown. Hazmat suits optional.
