Isn’t It Romantic - Archived

by Wendy Wasserstein

In, ”Isn’t It Romantic,” playwright Wendy Wasserstein sends two of her uncommon women into the jungle of New York to seek fulfillment, self-respect, romance and take-out food. Picked by Time magazine as one of the 10 best plays of 1983, “Isn’t It Romantic,” deals humorously with the plight of the ‘80s woman who has her mother on one side saying “Hurry up and get married; it’s later than you think,” and Cosmopolitan magazine on the other saying, “Don’t compromise, you can have it all.” Join Janie and Harriet as they take on New York, men, friendship and parents.
