HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

MONEY TALKS: But What the Hell is it Saying? is the wildly true story of two women artists, a generation apart, struggling to understand the meaning of success, failure, and their own self-worth.  It is a funny, serious, and intimate “conversation” presented by Kumu Kahua Theatre, as part of their Dark Night Series.

When 38-year-old German-born international singer/songwriter Lucie Lynch met 61-year-old Brooklyn-born international author Marcia Zina Mager they were both grappling with Hawaii’s high cost of living. Despite their age difference, the two Honolulu-based women decided it was time, once and for all, to deal with their life-long money issues by writing a full length Broadway musical  together called KaCHING. That 18 month journey transformed into a brazenly honest TED Talk-ish musical play chronicling the ups and downs of their intensive creative project.

MONEY TALKS debuted at the 2015 Oahu Fringe Festival where it broke box office records. The show recently won the prestigious Audience Choice Award at Iao Theatre as part of the 2016 Maui Fringe Festival. MONEY TALKS continues to impact diverse audiences, ranging from drug rehab residents to theatre goers, church congregations, and the Women’s Community Correctional Center.
