Claire Danes and John Krasinski star in the Public Theater’s Dry Powder—a vicious and hilarious drama skewering the people who skewer our global economy.

The catastrophic results of financial recklessness can be found everywhere these days—in headlines, on movie screens (The Big Short). Now the human cost of ruthless greed is coming to the Public Theater in Dry Powder, the 33-year-old Sarah Burgess’s scathingly funny, remarkably assured play about the battle for the soul of a private equity firm, starring Claire Danes and—making his professional stage debut—John Krasinski. Directing is the brilliant Thomas Kail, coming off the triumphs of Hamilton and the live-network-TV broadcast of Grease to helm a chamber piece, albeit one that goes for the jugular. “I had such a strong reaction to the confidence and muscularity and precision of Sarah’s writing,” says Kail, who is staging the play in the round. “I wanted to get all of us as close to the action as possible, to create a mini-colosseum where we could watch these characters crash into each other.”

Hank Azaria plays Rick, the president of KMM Capital Management, which is reeling from a public-relations nightmare (massive layoffs at a company he acquired taking place on the same day he threw himself an extravagant engagement party featuring a live elephant). Krasinski is Seth, one of Rick’s founding partners, a self-proclaimed good guy who wants to make things right by acquiring a luggage company and growing it; Danes is Jenny, a financial Terminator who wants to strip the company for its parts. “Seth is this great epitome of the human condition,” says Krasinski, for whom the play has echoes of Glengarry Glen Ross. “He’s got a moral compass, but at the same time he thinks, You’re all so lucky to have someone with my integrity inside the financial system—rather than realizing he’s actually a part of that system.”

Danes is thrilled to be returning to the New York stage for the first time since her 2007 turn in Pygmalion. She’s also excited to find her way into a new character after five years of playing Carrie Mathison on Homeland, though she does admit that Jenny and Carrie share some quirks. “They’re both incredibly myopic,” she says. “And they’re both difficult and not immediately affable, but impassioned. Neither of them is encumbered by a life or the messiness of human relationships—that’s their advantage. I do like that Jenny’s not such an open wound, because Carrie is, and that’s pretty exhausting. I find Jenny very charming—how can somebody have such awful values and say things that are so cutting and still be strangely adorable?”
