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

<p>The Wellesley Summer Theatre Company is proud to announce their production of the beloved American classic, Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, in the intimacy of the Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre. Directed by Artistic Director Nora Hussey and designed by the resident team of Ken Loewit (scenic and lighting design), Nancy Stevenson (costumes) and George Cooke (sound).
</p> <p> </p> <p>This story of life in small town America at the dawn of the twentieth century is brought to vivid life by the resident acting troupe. Now in its 11th season, this company has been repeatedly lauded for its acting ensemble. Grover's Corners and all its inhabitants play out the story of the endless cycle of birth, love and death in small town New Hampshire. In the New Yorker, critic John Lahr wrote, “Our Town leaves us with a sense of blessing and the unspoken but palpable command to achieve gratitude in what remains of our days on earth”.</p> <p> </p> <p>The production welcomes back company members past and present: Kit Arnold, Sarah Barton, Heather Boas, Danny Bolton, John Davin, Lisa Foley, Marc Harpin, Eric Hamel, Gladdy Matteosian and Charlotte Peed. It also welcomes newcomers Zach Bubolo, Christine Hamel, Will Keary and Ben Small.</p>
