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 husband and I attended the Splendor when we visited Boston. It was a very nice venue. I noticed some people were surprised about the closeness to the actors and actresses. It was a good play, a little too long though. Great acting. Particularly, Alexandria Danielle King, Hannah Cranton, Becca Lewis, Molly Kimmerling, Obehi Janice and Danny Mourino and James Milord. It was an interesting story line. It remind me of my Irish family growing up. Great job to all! Will definitely recommend it.

Always an interesting experience when you go to interactive theatre. The first part of the play was a little jumpy, however it all gathered speed in the 2nd half and was delivered very nicely. All so true human fragility, weakness and selfishness.
