The play is adapted by Becky London and Mahayana Landowne with permission from the playwright’s estate. Landowne will direct. According to press notes, the play "aims to give a portrait of the woman behind her plays. It offers Ms. Wasserstein's distinctive and often comedic observations on the obstacles faced by empowered women in securing love, respect and security in modern day New York City."

Wasserstein was a revered playwright who passed away on Jan. 30, 2006. Her works include The Sisters Rosensweig, An American Daughter, The Heidi Chronicles, Third, Uncommon Women and Other, Isn’t It Romantic and Pamela's First Musical.

The Unofficial New York Yale Cabaret is a theatre troupe that was founded by 11 graduates of the Yale School of Drama.

The West Bank Café's Laurie Beechman Theatre is at 407 West 42nd Street at 9th Avenue. Tickets are available at www.theatermania.com.
