Uncommon Women in an uncommonly good play
26 October 1998 | by kent-11See all my reviews

A very young Meryl Streep and Swoozie Kurtz are included in this excellent Wendy Wasserstein play about young women emerging from an exclusive college. The talent and future of the above as well as the rest of the cast and crew is obvious and their future course to excellence already charted.
