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

- "Experience the excited wonder that comes from witnessing something rare in the theater: a new, authentically original vision. It’s what people must have felt during productions of the early works of Eugene O’Neill ... or of Sam Shepard." <em>--</em><a target="_blank" href="http://theater.nytimes.com/2009/11/18/theater/reviews/18brother.html?pagewanted=all"><em>New York Times</em></a>
Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brother/Sister Plays are dangerous, modern-day stories of kinship, love, heartache and coming-of-age. McCraney speaks with authenticity about a world that is gritty and lyrical, urban and mythic. One of the most startling new American theatrical voices of the 21st century, McCraney is thrilling audiences internationally by pushing the boundaries of language, form, and sexuality in provocative and poetic ways.
