MONEY AND HOW TO MAKE IT!
“Looking for a show that will bring you great good fun? Don’t miss Money and How To Make It! at The Magnetic Theatre, where you’re sure to laugh often and deeply!” RoseLynn Katz, The Asheville Citizen-Times
“A wonderfully funny show! The perfect antidote to the overly serious and confounding world outside of the theatre!” Jeff Messer, 880therevolution
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? Chances are, the comic team responsible for The Magnetic Theatre’s How-To series has had much, much worse—and wants to share with you the little knowledge and wisdom gleaned through all they’ve done to make a little dough in their latest creation, Money and How To Make It!, playing at Magnetic 375 (375 Depot Street in the River Arts District) Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 PM, now through February 25 only! All performances $21 online/$24 at the door. $10 student rush tickets available 15 minutes before curtain with valid I.D.
The fourth in the series—after smash hits Sex and How To Have It!, Food and How To Eat It!, and Beer and How To Drink It!—Money and How To Make It! explores service jobs, scam artists, corporate mumbo jumbo, and more. You’ll also get a peek at how the show is created and at the sometimes-strained working relationships among the How-To Crew—and this behind-the-scenes look will show that, while money has the power to pull people apart, comedy and song-and-dance about money can bring them back together.
Bank on the million-dollar ensemble of Scott Fisher, Katie Langwell, Valerie Meiss, and Glenn Reed. Direction by Magnetic Theatre Artistic Director Steven Samuels. As always, all contribute material, along with head writer Lisa Yoffee. Lighting design by Jason Williams. Choreography by Kristi DeVille.
TERRY TEMPEST: The Final Interview
Aspiring journalist Olivia Blake has landed an interview with her childhood idol, Terry Tempest, lead singer of the iconic punk band The Storm. It could be the making of her career, but she knows the reclusive punk rocker is notorious for abusing interviewers (when he doesn’t ditch the interview altogether). Olivia brings her friend and fellow Storm fanatic Stacy along for support. For Olivia and Stacy, Terry Tempest is a god—the voice of the band that helped them survive the traumas of their youth. Terry, on the other hand, is none too happy to discover the two “fangirls” in his hotel room, and even more unhappy when his manager locks them all in until he agrees to give an interview. And then there are the guns…
Terry Tempest: The Final Interview is an exploration of fame, fandom, trauma, isolation, and connection. The narrative is by turns hysterically funny, satiric, and painful. The play’s dark ending reveals Tempest to be neither god nor monster, but human, with all the flaws that entails.
Helmed by Magnetic veteran Rodney Smith, and featuring Magnetic regulars Cody Magouirk, Carrie Kimbrell Kimzey, and Pasquale LaCorte, TERRY TEMPEST: The Final Interview introduces playwright Jamieson Ridenhour and actor Hayley Heninger to The Magnetic stage.
