It’s the last weekend for Mad Cow’s glorious production of The Heiress, and here’s a ticket deal for you.
The theater is offering two-for-one tickets for the last three performances (which are at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday). All you have to do is call the nice people in the box office and use the code word “hoopskirt.”
When Jennifer Christa Palmer, as the awkward title character in Mad Cow Theatre’s The Heiress, hears family members joke about her marriage prospects, her eyes widen in terror like those of a deer caught in the lights of an oncoming car in the middle of a lonely road.
But Palmer’s Catherine Sloper is no coward, and Palmer’s Catherine Sloper is no fool. This plainspoken young woman – tall, graceful and endearing, but rendered mute by her father’s scorn – becomes another person by the end of The Heiress. And watching Palmer’s Catherine turn into a force to be reckoned with is this riveting production’s greatest joy.
