Bankers scarce at Anglo the Musical

There was no sign tonight of any of the prominent bankers or politicians involved in the disaster that became Anglo Irish Bank at the musical designed to lampoon it and all its works.

The opening night of Anglo: The Musical was a near sell-out, a little like the bank it is named after which compromised every principle of good banking in its pursuit of profit.

Among those who attended the opening night at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre was independent TD Shane Ross who said Anglo deserved all the ridicule heaped on it.

Also in attendance was actor Gabriel Byrne, who declined to speak to the media after his controversial comments about The Gathering last week, U2 manager Paul McGuinness and Riverdance founder John McColgan.
