Granting a three star review only because the sets and costumes were very well executed. This play was doomed from the start as the writing is dull. Also, Richard Chamberlain is miscast in a role that demanded an edgier actor like Alan Rickman or...continued

The production was pretty good. Beautiful set and some very good acting. The play is 2 hours and 45 minutes with an intermission. The length of the play as well as the poor sound really affected my rating of this play.

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.
