Written by Michael Roberts and directed by Christopher Scott with music direction and arrangements by Steven Gross, the cast will feature Avenue Q Tony nominee Stephanie D'Abruzzo with Julia Burrows, Neal Mayer and James Donegan.

"What do Jamie Dimon, Lance Armstrong, Pope Francis and Bernie Madoff have in common?" press notes ask. "They all appear in Greed: A Musical for Our Times... Greed's musical comedy targets range from Ponzi schemes to the not so subtle sales pitches of retirement planners and mortgage bundlers." Song titles include “A Little Juice,” “Inside Information,” “I'll Cheat On My Taxes” and “The Ballad of Jamie Dimon."

Michael Roberts is the author, composer and lyricist of the musicals Golf: The Musical and The Fartiste, which played Off-Broadway during the 2011-12 season and won the 2006 FringeNYC Best Musical Award.

Show times will be Wednesday at 7 PM and Thursday and Saturday at 8 PM.

The box office will open March 5 with a special offer: All tickets purchased in person at the box office on that day only will be $19.99

Tickets range from $40-$65, with premium seats at $99 and super premium at $499. Rush seats ($30 @ 30 minutes before the show) are also available at the box-office only for all performances.
