Theater-Goers Flock to Buy Irish Banking Satire Tickets, FT Says

A musical comedy about the Irish banking crisis, in which puppets play the parts of former Prime Minister Bertie Ahern and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is proving popular with theater-goers in Dublin, the Financial Times reports.

About 40 percent of tickets to “Anglo: the Musical” have been pre-sold, the FT reports. The musical, which focuses on the collapse of Anglo Irish Bank Corp., will run for 10 days in November.
