Abundance (http://abundanceproject.net) is a tragic musical comedy based on a community arts performance project about the ways that people of different classes, races and ages negotiate economics in their daily lives.  [Thisis a clear-eyed, barrier-breaking, unsettling, and ultimately optimistic new play that lives on in the mind days after you see it.The subject is money and the shame, guilt and terror that make us reticent to talk about it . . . The camaraderie I felt upon leaving the theatre was surprising, haunting and inspiring. Stan Richardson, Nytheatre.com, January 12, 2004
