Rights to The Sister's Rosensweig by Wendy Wasserstein are no longer available to us. We are confident that you will enjoy this award-winning comedy as an alternate selection this season.
Marjorie Taub lives comfortably with her doctor husband Ira in an expensively furnished condo near Zabar's and spends her days and evenings pursuing culture at various museums and the theatre. Her ongoing effort to improve her mind and soul has brought Marjorie to the conclusion she never will be more than mediocre, a feeling enhanced by her elderly mother's constant complaints about her shortcomings and her husband's altruistic dedication to serving the needs of the homeless.
Following an emotional outburst in a Disney Store resulting in considerable breakage, Marjorie retires to the safety of her home to wallow in a mid-life crisis. Unexpectedly invading her depression is flamboyant childhood friend, Lee, who becomes entrenched in the Taub household as a seemingly permanent guest, not only drawing Marjorie out of her dark mood, but affecting her marriage as well.
Charles Busch won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Playwriting for this brilliant satire, as well as a nomination for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play.
Starring Julie Stevens, Aimee Kleiman, Ravi Kalani, Peter Leondedis, and Amy Ticho.
Directed by Steve Scott
