The Wendy Chronicles, a three-play tribute to the late Pulitzer Prize winner Wendy Wasserstein, will be presented by Jewish Women’s Theatre and Pop-Up Playhouse January 5 and 12, 2020, at The Braid in Santa Monica.
Directed by producer Stan Zimmerman, the ensemble will include Lucy DeVito (Deadbeat, Melissa & Joey), Andrea Bowen (Desperate Housewives), Amanda Bearse (All My Children, Married with Children), Emmy nominee Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Raviv Ullman (Bad Jews), Olivia Hack (Gilmore Girls), Oscar nominee Michael Lerner (Barton Fink), Allie Gonino, Danny Gomez, Melody Peng, Brittannie Bohman, and Mindy Cohn (Facts of Life), who will read stage directions.
The Wendy Chronicles will feature Wasserstein's Uncommon Women & Others (at 12:30 PM), Isn’t It Romantic (4 PM), and the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Heidi Chronicles (7:30 PM).
In a statement Zimmerman said, “This will be the first time these three legendary plays will be performed in one day, in repertory. Not only will audiences get to watch the growth of an important playwright through her words, they will also get to see some of their favorite actors playing multiple roles.”
