About This Show

BUOYANT BILLIONS, is one of Shaw’s wittiest and least known plays, written towards the end of his very long life. The plot: after WWII, a rich young man decides to venture forth into the world and become a professional ‘world betterer.’ Along the way he meets a bold young saxophone-playing heiress with a pet alligator who treats him so dreadfully that he becomes fascinated by her…and her entire peculiar Buoyant family.

The cast features Stephen James Anthony (WAR HORSE), Jennifer Cody (Disney’s “The Princess and The Frog,” SHREK THE MUSICAL), William DeMeritt, George Dvorsky (CLOSER THAN EVER), Hunter Foster (MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, URINETOWN), Andrea Lynn Green (HARRISON TX), Drew McVety (CYRANO DE BERGERAC), Hal Robinson, Margaret Loesser Robinson (NEW GIRL IN TOWN, MAN AND SUPERMAN), Victor Slezak (THAT FACE), Karen Stanion, Mark Waldrop (NEWSICAL), Lenny Wolpe (OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES), and Henry Yuk (NO FOREIGNERS BEYOND THIS POINT). The guest host is Gordon Cox of Variety.
