RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

A drawing room comedy that spans decades, Old Money introduces the exotic creatures that have inhabited an old Manhattan mansion, most recently during rich banker Jeffrey Bernsetin's posh party. A wealthy robber baron and his family, their descendants and assorted characters in their midst an Irish maid, a Hollywood producer, a social climbing decorator, confused teenagers and eccentric artists mingle in a contrast of old money and new.

REVIEWS

"The Tony Award-winning playwright has channeled her flair for witty social commentary into a portrait of two very wealthy families who live a century apart...A sharply written...rumination on how the other half lives, and a reminder that some of the best things in life truly are free even in Manhattan." - USA Today

"Wasserstein believes in the power of laughter [and]...she has a good eye for the foolish ways of the moneyed people then and, especially, now." - The New York Post

"Brilliantly nostalgic and infinitely charming...Rich, evocative, moody, elegant." - The Spectator


Old Money premiered at the Lincoln Center Theatre in New York City in November 2000 under the direction of Mark Brokaw.
