Due to popular demand and critical acclaim, IMAGINING MADOFF will enjoy a special encore extension at Boston University Theatre Lane-Comley Studio 210 in Boston, co-presented with Boston Center for American Performance (BCAP).
Nominated for two 2014 Elliot Norton Awards (Outstanding Production; Outstanding Actor, Jeremiah Kissel), playwright Deborah Margolin’s controversial new play imagines jail conversations between Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff and Solomon Galkin, a poet and Holocaust survivor. In a high moral showdown, these two Jewish men banter about women, baseball, the Talmud, human decency, kindness, and the story of Abraham and Isaac, revealing much about greed and the forces that led us to the Great Recession. The Boston Globe calls IMAGINING MADOFF “bracingly smart and engrossing.”
