Barry Ratcliffe will be playing Bernie Madoff's best friend Ted in this modern retelling of Dante's tale through the eyes of Wall Street's most infamous man.


San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/22/2015 --Writer director Tomas Puig puts a flavorful, funny, and twisted spin on Dante as we follow Bernie Madoff on his descent into hell, led by Virgil, played by veteran actor and writer Bob Saenz, his college buddy, conman, and tour guide. On his journey to demise or redemption, they spend time with his best friend Ted.

Ted is played by Barry Ratcliffe with a splendid performance meeting realism and satirical whimsy as we get a glimpse into the world of corrupt high finance. The emotions, the reflections, and the ludicrousness of Bernie Madoff's high stakes con, is given new light in this timely tale.
