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 (as well as most Americans) share a near hypnotic fascination with money and Rich Girl explores that 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 coincidence 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

The cast of Company sounded amazing when everyone sang at once. Several actors have great voices, a few are really good but just not projected well enough. The lead, playing Bobby, is completely charming. The show itself is hilarious. I definitely recommend this minimally staged show.
Quotes & Highlights
- Winner of six Tony Awards on Broadway, including Best Musical.
The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark "concept" show, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. During its two-year initial run on Broadway, Company went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The musical has since enjoyed recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End.
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, the audience is introduced to "those good and crazy people," Robert's married friends, as he weighs the pros and cons of married life. The story follows Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who's going to marry someone else) and Marta (the "peculiar" one), as well as with his married friends. In the end, he realizes being alone is "alone, not alive."
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum)
