From Bavarian brothers to fabled financiers — a poetically opulent play about a family dynasty that triggered the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.
It’s 1844 and a young Jewish immigrant opens a dry goods store in Alabama, where his siblings join him a few years later. Building from the slave-driven cotton industry, the brothers become NYC brokers and eventually leave in their legacy an investment bank that helped define the disingenuous American dream — before spectacularly crashing into bankruptcy. Through a mesmerizing human lens, this epic tale of profit and pain chronicles how each successive generation succumbs to boundless ambition and audacity on the disgraced financial firm’s road from riches to ruin.
