Want the chance to see Broadway shows, ‘The Heiress’ or ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?…well if that was a resonating YES, then we got you covered. Not only will two lucky contestants win the chance to see one of these amazing Broadway shows in New York with a friend courtesy of UBB but one of the two contestants will also win brunch with me! Yes, I will treat you to an ultra-exclusive brunch in the lower east side where we can gab about hair, fashion, life or whatever comes to mind! I am excited to share this giveaway with all of you so let’s get started!
I have yet to seen ‘The Heiress’ but the previews are tempting me in submission of joining the masses so I can rave from personal experience rather than from the sidelines. Officially opening Nov 1st , The Heiress stars Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (The Help) who portrays the socially introverted and ungainly, heiress, Catherine Sloper, Dan Steven (Downtown Abbey) stepping into the role of the mysterious newcomer and young admirer of Catherine Sloper, Morris Townsend then Oscar nominee and Emmy Award winner David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck, Temple Grandin) playing Catherine’s widower, emotionally abusive and cynical father , Dr. Sloper as well as two-time award winner Judith Ivey of (Steaming and Hurlyburly) completing the lead cast and balancing the cynicism with some optimism as the romantic and aunt of Catherine, Lavinia Penniman.
Adapted from the 1880 Henry James novel “Washington Square”, “The Heiress” follows Catherine Sloper who naively falls in love for the mysterious, newcomer Morris Townsend who her father, Dr. Sloper accuses of being a con artist after Catherine’s inheritance, or in modern day terminology Morris is dubbed as the golddigger! Yes family dysfuntion and emotional abuse is the main entree in The Heiress but certainly not the last course because ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ is the definitive example of pure dysfunction at its best!
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
The Steppenwolf Theatre Company takes on the timeless Pulitzernominated classic, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? an Edward Albee production which debuted in 1962, and fifty years later, this classic tackles issues still relevant today. Actors Amy Morton and Tracy Letts revive the roles of Martha and George, one of the most emotionally and physically dysfunctional married couples I have ever seen on stage or onscreen for that matter.
Witnessing the drama first hand, my sister and I attended the Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by the Steppenwolf Theatre Company on Broadway , and let me just say that the drama that unfolds and plays out from scene to scene is so ridiculously insane you don’t know whether to shake your head or laugh. The dysfunction and sarcasm is so horridly uncomfortable, openly displayed before your eyes, you can’t help but wanting to turn away but because of the mesmerizing talent of the casted ensemble you are literally riveted in your seat as if you are spying from a private hole in the wall. The production focuses on Martha and George, Martha is daughter of the president of the university in where her husband George is a professor of history. One evening after a work related party Martha invites, associate of George and younger professor, Nick (Madison Dirks) and his wife Honey (Carrie Coon) over for some after-hours leisure time but there is nothing leisurely is not what ensues. Without giving too much away with exact details let’s just say the drinks starts flowing and the havoc that follows will make your next verbal argument look like foreplay!
