"The Capitalist Ventriloquist" is a timely and pointed new musical comedy about dynastic hedge funds, the demands of billionaire investors, misguided parental expectations, and the struggle of the son of an imperious hedge fund owner for self-determination. He's a mathematical whiz-kid whose father expects him to report directly to work after graduate school and create a trading algorithm that will protect the firm against lightning-fast computer trades, which sway the market to perplexing and perilous extremes. But the son's inner voice since childhood tells him he'd rather be a ventriloquist – specifically, a singing ventriloquist.
