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

Audience kept to our feet the minute Avenue Q ended - the most enthusiastic standing ovation I've been part of in a while. Avenue Q at the Lyric Stage Company runs for another month. Bostonians, you don't want to miss this one.

It was amusing, but not that intelligent. We brought our 3 teenagers and while they enjoy some level of crude humor, the explicit puppet sex got a bit excessive. I still recommend this for adults, but leave the teens at home and you'll enjoy it more.

Part flesh (humans), part felt (puppets), and packed with heart (universal), Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets the girl next door, a Republican, an internet sexpert, and Gary Coleman (need we say more?), along with other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life. Warning: contains adult language and puppet nudity. Not for the kiddies, but your teenagers will think you’re cool if you take them!
Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
This show contains strong language, adult themes and partial puppet nudity.
