The weather was too darn hot!. I wore Jeans and a dressy top. WAY too hot in the theater though. Maybe a skirt and tank would be more comfortable..

Wonderful play and a great set of actors. The lead, who plays the daughter is very very good! Enjoyed the evening a lot. Great to see Richard Chamberlain on stage!

Description

Catherine Sloper, who stands to inherit a fortune from her ailing physician father, is a plain-looking young woman living under his malevolent scrutiny, as well as his well-meaning but cold-hearted demeanor. Dr. Sloper disapproves of Catherine’s passionate suitor Morris Townsend, certain that the penniless young man has proposed marriage to win Catherine’s inheritance. Catherine’s too much in love to consider this potential betrayal, and when circumstances lead her to misinterpret Morris’s intentions, The Heiress reaches an unforgettable conclusion that brilliantly supports the richly psychological nuance brought to the preceding romance.

Running Time: 2 hours and 20 minutes, with one intermission.
