New Edgecliff’s “Other People’s Money” Earns 4 Star LCT Rating
Posted On April 21, 2014
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati New Edgecliff’s Other People’s Money with a 4 Star Rating.
In Other People’s Money, Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkle’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 People’s Money as “one of the most uniformly finished and well thought out productions from NET in a long while.” “Although 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.” Director Greg Procaccino was praised for “communicating his vision” and doing “a great job of staging this show and drawing out the strengths of this piece.” Also commended was lead actor Mike Dennis as Lawrence Garfinkle and Mike King as William Coles. “Mike Dennis was fantastic!” one panelist commented, “his delivery, faces, physicality and energy were on point!” Mike King was “fantastic” and his “energy helped carry the show.”
