A tale of High Intrigue! High Rises! High Hopes! And Low-Cut Dresses!

From the auteur genius who brought us All About Eva and HEIST!: The Musical!

The cost, to Archipelago Delgado, to buy the silence of Storm Canterbury, who witnessed an attempted murder: $10

The cost, to Flora Jean, of a rinse and a cut at Dandy Delgado's hair salon and the opportunity to bear his child: $60

The cost, to Jinx Sheffield, of an ill-fitting off-the-rack Bob Mackie rip-off: $429

The look on Candleabra Sheffield Delgado's face when Chastisty Smythe, her demure secretary, revealed that she is the unacknowledged daughter of Forrest Sheffield (Candleabra's first husband): Priceless!

There are some people money can't buy.
For everyone else, there's EMPIRE!
