Singers vie to play Shkreli, America’s ‘most-hated man’, in musical

By Melissa Fares NEW YORK (Reuters) – Fourteen fame-hungry young men tried to out-smug each other at a small studio in Manhattan's Theater District on Saturday to prove they could play 'America's most hated man' in a new musical comedy about pilloried former drug executive Martin Shkreli. The hour-long production, titled "Martin Shkreli's Game: How Bill Murray Joined the Wu-Tang Clan," is based on Shkreli's controversial $2 million purchase last year of the sole copy of the hip-hop group's latest album. Set to open in July, it is a fictionalized account of comedian Bill Murray joining forces with the rappers to steal the album back.
