Anyone telling me that Kissel’s performance isn’t one of the absolute best on a Manhattan stage right now will have an argument on his or her hands.

New York Stage Review

Jeremiah Kissel swaggering in a power suit gleefully gives us the ballsy Madoff we desire ...Gerry Bamman is drolly commanding ...Jenny Allen is entrancing.”

Full Cast & Creative Team of Imagining Madoff

Imagining Madoff finds Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff in prison, determined to control his own narrative for history as he dictates to a visiting biographer stories about his childhood, his family, women, money and an all-night meeting he had with Holocaust survivor and poet, Solomon Galkin. Considered both “intriguingly exercised” (Washington Post) and “rich with dramatic tension” (Tampa Bay Times), the play explores themes of greed, willful blindness to the truth, and the beauty and danger of absolute faith, either in God or in men.
