Written and directed by David Lescot in 2012, The Ponzi Scheme is a play that follows the famous financial scam devised by Charles Ponzi, an Italian immigrant to Boston in the early 20th century. His story, which symbolises the illusions conjured by the world of finance, describes the adventures and determination of a man who guaranteed his investors that they would double their money in 45 days.
Alongside the singing and dancing, the razor-sharp yet subtle script reflects an extraordinary tale, offering a glimpse into a time when it seemed there were no limits to man’s ambition.
For this first Chinese adaptation, the famous actress Jiang Wenli will play the role of Charles Ponzi. His wife, Rose Ponzi, will be played by the remarkable singer, Vivi Jiang.
