The End of the Horizon
Johnson’s role is easily the most demanding, and so her success the most admirable. The character of Sloper requires an impressive range of expression over the course of the play, and Johnson’s performance shows no cracks or unrealistic leaps as we watch her character fully transform between her first nervous entrance and her quietly dramatic exit at the close. Despite a twisting road, she never loses the audience on her journey.
With a strong and compelling script and no weak links on the stage, PTC’s The Heiress is a rewarding experience. It made me almost as happy as if I’d come into a large sum of money. —RT
