Temporal Powers to Ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell Today
The cast of the Mint Theater’s acclaimed Off-Broadway show, Temporal Powers, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City’s Times Square to celebrate the play’s Aug. 29 opening. In honor of the occasion, Rosie Benton (in photo with Aidan Redmond) and the rest of the cast will ring today's Closing Bell beginning at 3:45 p.m. at NASDAQ MarketSite – 4 Times Square – 43rd & Broadway in the Broadcast Studio.
Temporal Powers, set in Ireland in the 1920s, is a story of love and loss, where hope and despair are two sides of the same contested coin. Michael and Min are stone-broke and homeless, but the greatest test of their marriage comes when, after taking shelter in a crumbling ruin, they stumble upon hidden treasure. Min sees a chance to start a new life; Michael fears it’s stolen and wants to give it to the priest. As the night grows dark, neither one is left able to see right from wrong.
