The Brilliance of Wendy Wasserstein!
31 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I miss Wendy Wasserstein, the playwright, who wrote feminist related plays. This play is probably my favorite starring Meryl Streep, Swoosie Kurtz, Jill Eikenberry, Ann McDonough, and Ellen Parker long before they were famous. Streep just won an Oscar. In this taped version of the stage play, the women of Mount Holyoke College talk about college life. I loved the interaction among the women. I wished that Wendy had lived because she really was the voice of women in this generation. This is not Sex and the City and thank God. These women are strong, intelligent, and independent. Almost 30 years later, Meryl Streep is one of America's greatest film actresses, Jill Eikenberry struck big with L.A. Law, Swoosie Kurtz is still on Broadway but also known for her appearances on television and film, and Ellen Parker won an Emmy for her role on Guiding Light. The story about these women characters reflected the women who played them.
