Rolling in the Dough with...Noah Berman

Name: Noah Berman

Hometown: Newton, MA

Who do you play in Serious Money:
TK, Brian, Ensemble

Tell us about Serious Money:
Serious Money is a biting satire about the deregulation of the international banking systems in the '80s.  I know, doesn't sound like a ripe subject for theatricalization, but this play has got some knocks to give, believe me.

Describe Serious Money in 3 words: Greed, Cocaine, FANGS

Which company member is most likely to be the richest?: Will it be self-fulfilling if I just say its me?

Most likely to solve a murder mystery?: Got to be Steve Dykes.  He knows so much about so much he's practically a Dan Brown protagonist. 

Most likely to get offed?: Anyone who touches Steve's daughter, Madeley Crenshaw-Dykes...

Who’s the sneakiest?: Molly O'Keefe.  You should just see her, slinking around backstage at the top of the show in that black cape like she's an assassin.

Sleaziest?: I think it would be me if I were to answer that question.  It's a Catch-22.

Cocaine or champagne?: Let's be real.  Both.

Why should we come see Serious Money?:
You should come see Serious Money because it's a glimpse into the life of the rich and infamous.  Even though it's a satire, I think if Bernie Madoff were to see it, he'd think it was eerily like looking in a mirror (one that spoke in rhyme, anyway).  And, if for no other reason, come to see us all sing and dance!
