Audible Editor Reviews

Based on the novel Washington Square, The Heiress is a play about love, manipulation, and the power of money. L.A. Theatre Works' full-cast production perfectly captures the zeitgeist of mid-19th-century New York. Amy Irving shines in particular, starring as the central character Catherine Sloper. Her precise voice acting empathetically conveys Catherine's painful position, sandwiched between two strong-willed, money obsessed men. George Gaynes also finds his niche in his portrayal of the complex and polarizing character of Dr. Sloper. A wonderful production of this Tony Award winning drama.
