Playwright Victoria Stewart was inspired by two very different figures -- CNBC personality Suze Orman and Victorian novelist Henry James -- when writing her latest, most probing play, Rich Girl. For despite their differences, both Orman and James share an obsession with money and Rich Girl explores that peculiarly American fascination with startling sensitivity and imagination. When the sheltered Claudine meets the penniless Henry, the two fall helplessly in love. But for Claudine's mother, a tough-talking celebrity finance guru, this happiest of happy coincidences is a cause for suspicion and worry. Inspired by the classic play and film The Heiress, this clever new comedy examines women and their relationships with men, mothers and moolah -- if not in exactly that order. Courtney O'Connor directs the show at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston. Learn More

My almost-4 year-old daughter had a great time. Overall, she and I both enjoyed it. The actors sing and dance well. My daughter particularly liked the number featuring the young actor playing Frog as a little frog in his youth. Despite the slightly tense moment when he faces the "Large and Terrible Frog", that proved to be my daughter's favorite, or most memorable moment of the play. That, and the comic relief by the snail delivering the mail.
Boston Children’s Theatre (BCT) is proud to announce that Broadway veteran Danielle Ferland will be directing their spring production of A Year with Frog and Toad. An original member of the Broadway cast ofA Year with Frog and Toad, Ms. Ferland’s extensive credits include originating the role of Little Red Riding Hood in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, as well as her Broadway debut at age 13 in Sunday in the Park with George, and The Crucible.
“We are thrilled to have an actress of Danielle’s caliber working with our students,” said Burgess Clark, BCT Executive Artistic Director. “Her extensive knowledge of this piece, combined with her innate understanding of what it’s like to be a young actor, makes this an experience our students will never forget. We are honored to be the first children’s theatre Danielle has worked with on this production.”
According to Ms. Ferland, the children’s version of A Year with Frog and Toad is extremely similar to the original Broadway production with themes that remain relevant and timeless. “The main focus of this show is to celebrate friendship,” explains Ms. Ferland. “No matter where we are in life, we need to remain true to our friends and to ourselves. These themes are played out in such a way as to appeal to both children and adults. This is not a kitschy show. It’s a lighthearted, fun musical that teaches valuable lessons about respect, friendship and loyalty. Plus, I just love the relationship between Frog and Toad!”
