06 Sep The New York Times: ‘A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff’ Review: Reflections on a Scandal
Posted at 16:59h in News
A whimsical hybrid of musical, memoir and documentary looks at Bernard Madoff through the lens of Jewish identity.
Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme ruined an untold number of investors and struck such a political and social chord that it has inspired screen projects such as “The Wizard of Lies,” at least two Off Broadway plays, including “Imagining Madoff,” and enough books that there are lists dedicated to the best ones.
Add to this bulging collection the musical “A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff,” which Alicia Jo Rabins debuted onstage in 2012 and has now adapted into a film with the director Alicia J. Rose.
