The Classic Stage Company’s production of The Heir Apparent has extended its run though May 11 off-Broadway. Written by David Ives and directed by John Rando, the play stars Tony nominees David Pittu and Suzanne Bertish. It had previously been set to shutter May 4.
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 are joined by Carson Elrod, Claire Karpen, Amelia Pedlow, Dave Quay and Payton Whitehead.
