Wendy Wasserstein
Librettist

Biography
In 1989, Wendy Wasserstein won the Pulitzer Prize for The Heidi Chronicles and was the first woman playwright to win a Tony Award. In 1973, Wasserstein joined the MFA program at The Yale School of Drama and was the only woman in the playwriting program. Her thesis, Uncommon Women and Others, depicting five women friends over several years, was produced at the Phoenix Theater in New York in 1977. Wasserstein devoted her career to depicting intelligent, talented, nuanced women, such as the protagonists of her 1992 The Sisters Rosensweig. While she is mainly known for her dramas, she also wrote three musicals, various comedy skits for the television series Comedy Zone, and essays published in the New Yorker, Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, and other magazines.
