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
Quotes & Highlights
- "A great novel has been transformed into truly stunning theatre." --<em>The Daily Telegraph</em>
This adaptation of Oliver Twist is an American premiere.
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens
Adapted and directed by Neil Bartlett
Inspired by the vivid world of the Victorian music hall, Neil Bartlett's staging of Oliver Twist uses the original language of Dickens' novel to dramatize one of the most deeply felt stories about childhood ever written. A cast of unforgettable characters brings the underworld of 19th-century London back to thrilling life--a city teeming with images of danger and fear--all seen through the eyes of an astonished child. Comic and tragic, musical and dramatic, Neil's adaptation of Oliver Twist was a runaway success in London.
