Lincoln Center Theater produced the 1992 world premiere of The Sisters Rosensweig, which ran a total of 745 performances — first at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, LCT's Off-Broadway space, and then at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway. Klein was in the original cast.
LCT also produced Wasserstein's An American Daughter, Old Money and Third, her final play.
