Sometimes, families can be the death of you. The Classic Stage Company production of David Ives’ The Heir Apparent starts preview performances on March 28. The play, directed by John Rando and starring Tony nominees David Pittu and Suzanne Bertish, will run through May 4. Opening night is set for April 9.
Young Eraste 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 who could “out-Figaro” Figaro.
Pittu and Bertish will be joined by Carson Elrod, Claire Karpen, Amelia Pedlow, Dave Quay and Payton Whitehead.
