“Enron: The Musical.” Opening on Friday on a stage way, way off Broadway — at Lambert Hall in Houston — the revue is a send-up of the rise and fall of the infamous energy company.
In two acts, six local actors each play up to 10 roles, including those of the former chief executives Kenneth L. Lay and Jeffrey K. Skilling, and the former finance chief Andrew S. Fastow. The songs are show-tune parodies — “Thank Heaven for Off The Books Deals,” for example, instead of “Thank Heaven for Little Girls.” The writer-director-producer is Mark Fraser, whose day job is selling janitorial supplies.
