Undaunted, the playwright, composer, and cast found a theatre, led a waiting audience there, and improvised a skeletal version of the play that electrified the audience. Though the musical was penned during the Depression era, society continues to play and replay its story today: the clash between the business mogul and those seeking equitable treatment for workers who toil within the corporate sphere.
