below is a list of David Axlerod's plays - click on a Play Title for more information
as described by Billboard, "MONEY concerns a wealthy young man, almost a modern 'Candide,' spurred on to do something in the world by a girl he loves. Pushed on by his love, the young man discovers that the working world, the professional world, and the institutional world is often dominated by grasping, greedy men and women. He fails in everything he attempts and it all comes out right in the end, for his pushy young woman can accept him as a complete failure. The most enjoyable parts are the skits that could have been staged as separate numbers in a revue. One is a take-off on doctors as businessmen, another is a satire on organizations and associations from the John Birchers to left-wing kooks. Most hilarious of all is the take-off on philanthropic organizations and charities. The music is most effective, the lyrics are often a gas, and there are some very funny plot lines." all blending together into a refreshing and unusual show with an infectious comic spirit which bubbles along delightfully from the fast-moving start to the all-out-ensemble finish.
David Axlerod And Tom Whedon, music by Sam Pottle
