Wendy Wasserstain has been among our chief theatrical witnesses, capturing the essential elements of contemporary women’s lives, infusing them with a decidedly female sensibility and returning them to use as theatre. Wendy Wasserstein is probably best known for THE HEIDI CHRONICLES, which won a Pulitzer Prize and the first Tony Award given to a female playwright. A writer writes to make sense out of things, to put order to experience; Wendy Wasserstein does all that and more – she writes to illuminate, to clarify, to ask questions and to entertain.From AudioFile:
L. A. Theatre Works presents another rich radio drama (or, in this case, comedy) with this Broadway hit about family angst and love as three sisters from Brooklyn meet up in London for a birthday party. The LATW standard of audio quality is wonderfully exemplified again in this vibrant cast. (Jamie Lee Curtis, a veteran of Wasserstein's plays, is particularly engaging.) Top-notch sound effects bring listeners into a virtual theater, and the talent and skill of the actors infuse life into this poignant, witty production.
