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

This rarely done musical fit right into the confines of the Gloucester Stage Company.
Great voices throughout the performance. Victoria Thornsbury captured the young innocent orphan and what a great voice. Gus Curry played the angry, cynical Paul who finally succumbs to her gentleness and love.
All of the cast were fun to watch especially Shannon Lee Jones and her caddish boyfriend, Daniel Robert Sullivan.
Going to Gloucester Stage Company in the summer, is wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon or evening.
