SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Creative Place International, a small professional Actor’s Equity theater company in residence at the Riggi Theater at the National Museum of Dance, will present Jerry Sterner’s play from the 1980’s, “Other People’s Money,” from August 13 to 16.
The play follows the drama of a hostile takeover of an obsolete New England family business, which has provided jobs and sustenance for an entire town for decades. We meet the earnest and deserving family that has run the business as they come up against “Larry the Liquidator,” a Wall Street predator everyone will love to hate.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump said the play “is extraordinarily insightful, timely and witty.”
“Some of the funniest lines I’ve heard in a long time,” Wall Street denizen Carl Icahn said.
Performances are Thursday through Saturday, August 13 to 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 16 at 2 p.m. Sunday’s performance is a benefit for the Yaddo Garden Association. Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com/event/1668207 or by calling (518) 584-7780. For more information, visit thecreativeplaceinternational.org.
