In the Lansburgh Theatre
After Gogol and before Chekhov, Alexander Ostrovsky dominated Russian stages
with his comedies and dramas about modern life. In Crazy Money, Ostrovsky
depicts the world of 1860s Moscow, made topsy-turvy by the relentless pursuit
of new money in order to fortify old debts and shore up strained credit. But
the only sure thing, Ostrovsky observes, is crazy money. With stinging social
commentary, Ostrovsky paints a portrait of a world all too familiar to our
own. Crazy money is easy come, easy go, but Crazy Money has a comedic
bite that stays with you.
