“A subversive TED talk meets broadway musical!”
THE TRUE STORY OF two Women artists, A german and a Jew, born a generation apart, trying to understand Success, failure, and self-worth by writing a broadway musical about money.
When 35-year-old German-born international singer/songwriter Lucie Lynch met 60-year-old Brooklyn-born international author Marcia Zina Mager they were both struggling to pay their bills. The two Honolulu-based artists decided to channel their financial frustration into writing a Broadway musical about money. That 18-month journey gave birth to MONEY TALKS: But What the Hell is it Saying, a brazenly honest musical that explores one of the most important questions of the 21st century: What’s my worth?
For the past 4 years, MONEY TALKS has been performed all over Hawaii for diverse audiences including women inmates, recovering drug addicts, church and synagogue congregations, corporate and theatre crowds. In June, 2019, MONEY TALKS celebrated its successful mainland debut at The Historic Ute Theatre for the economically challenged county of Saguache, Colorado.
Fiercely entertaining and deeply provocative, this intimate musical brings audiences to their feet and sends them home with a brave new way to view themselves and the world.
