Classic French farce is on display at CSC, thanks to a madcap adaptation by David Ives. The Heir Apparent is a fast-paced, entertaining tale about a sickly miser whose nephew is desperate for him to die so he can inherit his fortune.

It is Mr. Ives, and his director John Rando (of Urinetown and A Christmas Story) who make The Heir Apparent a ludicrously luscious affair. Unlike other new comedies recently arrived in town, this one is packed with characters, laughs, and enough information for us to discern an actual plot (such as it is).
