Life is so damned short.
I’m totally cold – my hands, arms, right down my back to my feet. I just heard that Wendy Wasserstein has passed away at Sloan Kettering Cancer center. Her plays figured very significantly in my life – Uncommon Women & Others was the first play I ever directed when I was in college. I’m just stunned. I met her once, it was a wonderful moment for me. Apparently she’d been ill for a long time – she was only 55.
Her daughter, Lucy Jane, was born in 1999 – she’s younger than Maxie – god bless that little girl.
