Authorities at the Federal Reserve are meeting next week on whether to start raising interest rates for the first time in nine years. And if you head over to Broadway, there’s a history lesson being performed every night about Alexander Hamilton fighting for what would eventually become the Fed.

Click the media player above to hear Broadway producer Jeffrey Seller in conversation with Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio.

Jeffrey Seller, one of the producers of the Broadway blockbuster, joined us to talk about taking a risk on a show about America’s first treasury secretary, and what the show’s ticket lottery system teaches us about queuing theory.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
