Buoyant Billions, which is set after WWII, concerns "a rich, young man [who] decides to venture forth into the world and become a professional 'world betterer.' Along the way he meets a rich, young saxophone-playing heiress who treats him so dreadfully that he becomes fascinated by her — and her entire peculiar family."
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
