        Cool Million or The Dismantling of Lemuel Pitkin, A

Cool Million or The Dismantling of Lemuel Pitkin, A

A Cool Million is a brutally deadpan comedy and jaw-droppingly relevant satire on a society where greed is good, and everyone is out to make a quick buck. In this world premiere, three vaudevillian performers create the epic story of Lemuel Pitkin, an impoverished yet eternally optimistic young man who sets out to make his fortune at the height of the Great Depression. What could possibly go wrong? Big city grifters; fluttering heroines; carnival hustlers; corrupt cops, lawyers and politicians; gold diggers; sinister foreigners; and the rise of a Fascist state! With songs!
