Tomorrow, Sat Jul 30, at 2pm there will be a special sneak peek of Waterwell's latest drop, The Wizard of Wall Street: Of Bulls and Bears.
Originally commissioned by Indiana University, Of Bulls and Bears is the first installment in a trilogy of new musicals about the life and times of financier/railroad executive Jay Gould, who was according to Joseph Pulitzer, "one of the most sinister figures that has ever flitted bat-like across the vision of the American people." Known in his own time as the "Mephistopheles of Wall Street" and throughout history as the "Robbingest of the Robber Barons," Gould's was one of the most spectacular and controversial careers in American business.
Created by ensemble members Lauren Cregor Devine, Tom Ridgely and award-winning playwright Jonathan A. Goldberg, this latest version of Wizard is being presented by the Assembly as part of its Make Your Own City Arts Festival at the Collapsable Hole in Brooklyn.
