The New York Times reports that Vogel, 52, married college professor Anne Fausto-Sterling, 60, in a ceremony officiated by the couple's friend, Marlene Gerber Fried. Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of How I Learned to Drive, is the daughter of the late Donald S. Vogel, a former Washington publicist and founder of the HIV/AIDS Carl Vogel Center, and the late Phyllis R. Vogel, a former secretary at Bethesda's Postal Service Training and Development Center.
The Signature Theater Company is currently presenting Vogel's The Oldest Profession; the season will also offer Vogel's The Baltimore Waltz and the New York premiere of Hot 'n' Throbbing.
Anne Fausto-Sterling, the author of "Sexing the Body: Gender Politics and the Construction of Sexuality," teaches biology and gender studies at Brown University. She and Vogel met at the Rhode Island institution 15 years ago. The daughter of Dorothy Sterling and the late Philip Sterling, Fausto Sterling's previous marriage ended in divorce. Her late father, a CBS radio publicity representative, authored "Sea and Earth: the Life of Rachel Carson," and her mother penned "Freedom Train: The Story of Harriet Tubman."
