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
Reviews & Ratings
Running time is approximately one hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.
The show contains adult language and some descriptions of adult situations. It's recommended for high school age and older.
From the everyday lives of “ordinary” working people comes a musical that's anything but ordinary. Adapted by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell, Wicked) from Studs Terkel’s magnificent oral history, Working reveals the hopes, dreams, joys, and concerns of the average working American by following them through one 24-hour workday. Schwartz wrote the songs along with James Taylor, Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) and others, creating an inspired eclectic, tuneful, moving and uplifting score.
