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 (as well as most Americans) share a near hypnotic fascination with money and Rich Girl explores that 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 coincidence 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 was a FABULOUS play!!! The teacher had the most amazing singing voice as did the rest of the cast. They asked some audience members if they wanted to be called up to be in the play for a bit, and it was just a fun wonderful, funny, show. There weren't a lot of people there, but they performed like they was!!! Great little theater, LOTS of parking, very friendly. Fun night!!
The show centers around a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally-quirky grown-ups.
