RIP Wendy Wasserstein

Playwright Wendy Wasserstein has died at age 55.

Wasserstein was an important feminist playwright, who penned such plays as "The Sisters Rosensweig” and "The Heidi Chronicles," which won her a Pulitzer Prize in 1989. She worked with some of the best actresses ever to grace stage or screen—Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Dianne Wiest, Swoozie Kurtz, and Joan Allen, among others, providing them the kind of material that most actresses dream about.

I’m really sad. She was so young.
