Third: The Riveting Summation of Wendy Wasserstein's Career
Winner of both the Tony and the 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 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.
