New Edgecliffâ€™s â€œOther Peopleâ€™s Moneyâ€ Earns 4 Star LCT Rating
Posted On April 21, 2014
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati New Edgecliffâ€™s Other Peopleâ€™s Money with a 4 Star Rating.
In Other Peopleâ€™s Money, Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkleâ€™s computer is going tilt over the undervalued stock of New England Wire & Cable. If the stockholders back his take over, they will make a bundle but what will happen to the 1200 employees and the community when he liquidates the assets? This compelling drama explores whether corporate raiders are creatures from the Black Lagoon of capitalism or realists.
Panelists praised Other Peopleâ€™s Money as “one of the most uniformly finished and well thought out productions from NET in a long while.â€ â€œAlthough presented as a period piece (the play was written in 1989), the themes and subjects of Other People’s Money are just as relevant today as they were then.â€ Director Greg Procaccino was praised for â€œcommunicating his visionâ€ and doing â€œa great job of staging this show and drawing out the strengths of this piece.â€ Also commended was lead actor Mike Dennis as Lawrence Garfinkle and Mike King as William Coles. â€œMike Dennis was fantastic!â€ one panelist commented, â€œhis delivery, faces, physicality and energy were on point!â€ Mike King was â€œfantasticâ€ and his â€œenergy helped carry the show.â€
