Markets go up, markets go down.  But Madoff’s returns went up, more or less.  In a straight line.  For forty years.  Who wouldn’t want that kind of security – no downturns, just growth?  No failure, no loss, no death.  It’s beautiful. 

But it’s impossible. 

Girls in Trouble frontwoman Alicia Jo Rabins explores the spiritual implications of the financial collapse. Her theatrical song cycle—which draws on interviews with FBI agents and Madoff victims—investigates the intersection of mysticism and finance, the cycles of life and business, and the true meaning of wealth.
