River Credit

The Wizard of Wall Street is an all new musical about the life and times of financier/railroad executive Jay Gould who was, according to Joseph Pulitzer, “one of the most sinister figures that have ever flitted bat-like across the vision of the American people.” Known in his own time as the “Mephistopheles of Wall Street” and throughout history as “Robbingest of the Robber Barons,” Jay Gould’s was one of the most spectacular and controversial careers in American business. Produced by Waterwell, workshopped at Indiana University as a grant-funded Premiere Musical.

In “River Credit,” we hear Jay Gould as he formulates what would become our current system of credit, underscored by the unsuspecting populus.
