With Marco Millions (based on lies), Waterwell puts its signature irreverent stamp on an obscure play by one of America’s greatest dramatists, Eugene O’Neill. It is a musical kaleidoscopic and freewheeling ride that confronts questions of class and race that are as important now as they were in 1928… or 1271.
The production premiered at the Lion Theater within Theater Row, 42nd st, during the summer of 2006. It garnered praise from Variety, TimeOut NY, Backstage, and many more.
In this track, Kevin Townley, Hanna Cheek, Arian Moayed, Rodney Gardiner and Tom Ridgely perform the Opening Number to Marco Millions: Based on Lies, recorded at NYC’s Joe’s Pub.
