David Strathairn is one of my favorite actors. For the past few months he has been appearing in a great play called The Heiress, at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City. Mr. Strathairn, playing the role of Dr. Austin Sloper, stars along with Jessica Chastain, Dan Stevens and Judith Ivey in a play written by Ruth and Augustus Goetz.
The Heiress tells the story of Catherine Sloper, an ordinary looking young, awkward, unmarried woman, who desperately longs for love with a handsome suitor by the name of Morris Townsend. Catherine's father suspects that Morris is only after the family's money and Catherine is caught between the two of them. Even though Dr. Sloper tells Catherine he will "write her out of his will" if she marries Morris, Catherine is forced to chose between her ailing father and the man she wants to marry.
The play takes place in 1850's New York City, in the Sloper townhouse. The sets are exquisite having been designed by Derek McLane and the extremely unique costume designs of this time period are by Albert Wolsky. Both have done a wonderful job of conveying the time the play takes place in for sure. Brilliant direction is by Moises Kaufman who has done allot on Broadway over the years.
I personally saw the show a few months ago when it began previews, and although I generally prefer Broadway musicals, I do have to say that the play and the actors were quite captivating. I really thoroughly enjoyed myself after obtaining The Heiress tickets and have suggested it often to those seeking non-musical choices on Broadway.
Right now, The Heiress tickets are on discount through February 3, 2013, one week before the shows closing date.
