Tickets are now on sale to see Tony nominees David Pittu and Suzanne Bertish star in Tony nominee David Ives' The Heir Apparent, adapted from the play by Jean-François Regnard. Directed by John Rando, the show will begin performances March 28 at the Classic Stage Company and play a limited engagement through May 4. Opening night is set for April 9.
Meet young Eraste. He has it all: good looks, a beautiful fiancée, and a huge inheritance from an ancient uncle. There’s just one little problem: the uncle won’t die and he’s bequeathed his entire fortune to a distant relative. Oh, and did we mention the uncle also intends to marry Eraste’s fiancée? What’s a fine 18th-century fellow to do? What else but enlist the aid of his resourceful servant, Crispin, who could “out-Figaro” Figaro.
The cast will also feature Carson Elrod, Claire Karpen, Amelia Pedlow, Dave Quay and Paxton Whitehead.
