Drama Comedy New work Minnesota premiere

For over a year, Michael Larson devoted his life to studying the Press Your Luck! game board — he quit his job, he filled his living room with televisions and video cassette recorders, he pored over thousands of hours of episodes convinced he could crack the code… And then he did. 
On May 19th, 1984, Michael Larson shocked American audiences by winning an unprecedented $110,000 in a single game.
This January, Sandbox Theatre will share this man’s obsession to beat the odds and win the cash in Big Money.



America has one great mythical figure lodged deep in its heart: the Rugged Individual. We celebrate the lone wolves who buck institutions, who are faster, better, smarter than everyone else. We love the idea that a scrappy underdog can beat The System.

But is it that simple – work hard and get ahead? The truth is much more complicated. In
Big Money, we’ll unpack the myths, explore the truths and ask ourselves what it really means to win in America.
