Jerry Sterner

Jerry Sterner is either a successful businessman disguised as a playwright or a successful playwright masquerading as a businessman. After a lucrative career in the Real Estate business in New York, he turned to pursue his first love – playwriting. Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play of 1989, Other People’s Money has been the most produced play in recent memory. It has been performed in virtually every major regional theatre in the country, in London and throughout Western Europe and much of Asia. 

The one area Sterner will not license it is in the former Soviet Union. "I don’t want to kill capitalism before it gets off the ground" he’s been quoted as saying. And, of course, it became a major motion picture starring Danny DeVito and Gregory Peck. 

In addition to being the author of Other People’s Money, he has written a musical called Topper, based on the old Cary Grant movie, as well as 1040, an original play about the tax code. He has been hard at work on an original movie for Jerry Lewis.
