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
Forbidden passion, intrigue, murderous revenge…it all makes for a lovely evening in this brand-new production of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera (A masked ball).
