AFFLUENZA!

Genre: Comedy
The New York Premiere of James Sherman's Comedy of Manners

Affluenza! is a contemporary farce by James Sherman (named the Neil Simon of Lincoln Avenue). Multi-millionaire William Moore lives the high life in his Chicago penthouse with his loyal assistant Bernard. When Moore brings home a new girlfriend, his son and ex-wife are threatened by the potential new heir to his fortune. Who gets what and who ends up with whom is revealed in this lively farce.

The Chicago Reader exclaimed, "James Sherman has created a Moliere play for our times," while the Chicago Sun Times raved, "Monsieur Moliere, Sherman has neatly captured your taste for pranks and reversals and all forms of scheming."

Heiress Productions was founded to raise cancer awareness and funds through entertaining and inspirational professional theater. Proceeds from Affluenza! will benefit Miracle House, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to caregivers and patients coming to New York City for treatment. Through the years, its mission has grown to include anyone seeking critical medical treatment including cancer, clinical trials, reconstructive surgery and more.
