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

There was a great crowd and the opera was flawlessly performed. It was a wonderful evening all around. There were English translations displayed at the sides of the stage that were helpful but not distracting. I will definitely return to the BLO with Goldstar.

It's Christmastime in Paris as Puccini's beloved classic La bohème kicks off Boston Lyric Opera's 2007-2008 Season. Puccini's lush and romantic music permeates this story of ill-fated love set against the carefree and reckless lifestyle of 19th century bohemian Paris. Come see, hear and feel one of the great romantic stories of all time.
