A new musical about corporate greed, the American Dream gone wrong, and what happens when you try to f*** with a certain hip-hop group and their pal Bill Murray.

When evil “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli raised the price of Daraprim 5,000%, he became one of America’s real-life villains. Then, he did the unthinkable: purchased, hoarded, and threatened to destroy a one-of-a-kind hip-hop album that the world had been anticipating for years. Watch Martin Shkreli get what’s coming to him in this ridiculous original musical full of hoverboards, hauntings, and fake news.
