Society's dreams in tatters: a ruptured economy, failing banks, government bailouts of the wealthy, unbridgeable gaps between rich and poor. It's not 2009... it's 1729! This take-no-prisoners English musical parodies what we see now as the permanent societal imbalance between rich and poor with a scathing look at life and love in a world on the brink of revolution. Does anything ever change?
