But what the hell is it saying?

I love money talks musical

celebrating our inherent value

A motivational (and musical) presentation about acknowledging the worth of every human being

Lucie Lynch & Marcia Zina Mager blend more than 4 decades of performance and seminar experience to turn the traditional motivational talk on its head. This heart-felt 45 minute musical conversation chronicles the lessons they learned about inherent value and self worth through the writing, producing, and performing of their two-woman musical. Meeting under near mystical circumstances as total strangers, they went on to become an award-winning duo. Their show, MONEY TALKS: But What the Hell is it Saying broke box office records at the Honolulu Fringe Festival, won the Audience Choice Award at the Maui Fringe Festival, and performed to a sold out crowd at the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre. They’ve performed at diverse venues around Hawaii, including Turtle Bay Resort, TAG Theatre, Kumu Kahua Theatre, WCCC (Oahu’s women’s prison), as well as local and international corporations, drug rehabs, churches and synagogues. In June 2019 MONEY TALKS will have its world debut in Saguache, Colorado as part of the grand re-opening of the Historic Ute Theatre. This presentation is appropriate for all ages.
