Directed by Yolanda Fleischer
Featuring Sandra Birch, Robert Grossman ec B.J. Love

"All three actors give superb performances in this fascinating look at the ruthless perpetrator of history's largest Ponzi scheme. During a long evening filled. with drink and
discussion that includes the Holocaust, the Bible, the Talmud, love, marriage and desire, the audience remains captivated." -Ronelle Grier, The Jewish News

"A cerebral intriguing rumination about the biggest swindle in history...with a top of the line cast that invokes everything from fishing to baseball.
Robert Grossman in a welcome return, brings out the more playful aspects of the wise and dignified man of letters, and his scholarly piety. B.J. Love as Madoff is
unflinching in his bitterness, resentment and lack of remorse and as an unnamed secretary, testifying before the Securities and Exchange Commission,
Sandra Birch is the closest thing to the audience's representative. -Martin F. Kohn, Encore Michigan

"A nondescript guy motivated by a lust for power, even his incoherent mumbling becomes a power trip as he forces clients to succumb to moneymaking
schemes they can't begin to understand. B. J. Love as Madoff exhibits quiet menace as he views the world with bitterness and narcissism...Robert Grossman
as Galkin poses the show's best moral quandaries including a fresh debate on the real meaning of the blind obedience Abraham showed when God told him to
slaughter his son. Madoff sees the story as a Nazi metaphor but Galkin views it as a lesson in putting blind faith in a higher power -- both conduits for
thoughtful discussion about Madoffs misspent life." -John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press

"The actors capture their characters with natural believability raffling more questions than they answer: Why did he defraud so many? Was he realty evil or did his
own con consume him? This show is for those who can wait for the wisdom and appreciate the epiphanies when they arrive." -Sue Suchyta, Dearborn Times Herald
