Winner of both a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, Wendy Wasserstein fearlessly borrowed from her own personality when creating the protagonists of plays such as The Heidi Chronicles, Old Money and The Sisters Rosensweig. These characters tended to be like herself -- intelligent, funny, liberal, and immensely accomplished. The heroine of Third, Wasserstein's last work before her untimely death at age 56, is similarly gifted ... but also smug, over-confident and dangerously shallow. Laurie Jameson is a professor at an elite liberal arts college and a steadfast feminist. When one of her students turns in a paper she finds far too good for such a "privileged white male" to have written, she starts a plagiarism investigation that quickly morphs into a review of her own prejudices. In no other play is Wasserstein as witty, as compassionate, or as critical of her own beliefs, as in Third, the capstone to one of the most distinguished careers in Broadway history. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "[The musical takes] American idealism, resentment and fear of being perpetually misunderstood - adds a ravenous sense of entitlement and mixes these ingredients together in one big, gawky, sexually charged package: America, the eternal teenager. And who better to lead this restless, appetite-driven creature than a red-blooded rock star?” --Ben Brantley, <em>The New York Times</em>
- "Insanely funny! <em>Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson</em> makes a bid for the smartest, sharpest new musical in years." --<em>Time Out</em>
- "Exhilarating and genuinely thought-provoking. <em>Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson</em> oozes political relevance." --<em>USA Today</em>
