Premiere: Wall-Street Drama Junk

April 5, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$56 – $72

As the brilliant and calculating Robert Merkin prepares a hostile takeover of a family-owned manufacturing company, he is not concerned about crossing the line to get what he wants in the name of “saving America.” Inspired by the real junk bond giants of the 1980s, Junk explores how the riveting, hostile takeover of a family-owned manufacturing company paved the way to expose the rise of greed, power, race and wealth that led to reshaping the rules of Wall Street and the world. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ayad Akhtar.
