Wendy Wasserstein's "Sisters Rosensweig"
At The Huntington
November 4 - December 4

The Huntington Theatre Company continues its fall season with “The Sisters Rosensweig,” Wendy Wasserstein’s Tony Award-winning comedy of family relationships. Playing November 4 - December 4, the production is directed by Artistic Director Nicholas Martin and features a triumvirate of veteran actresses including Maureen Anderman, Mimi Lieber and Deborah Offner.
“Sisters,” which garnered six Tony nominations and ran for 556 performances on Broadway, tells the story of one weekend in the lives of three Jewish-American sisters from Brooklyn who gather in London to celebrate the 54th birthday of expatriate oldest sister Sara.  During the lively weekend, the sisters – with Sara’s daughter Tess and several male friends – throw a party, share secrets, and try to decipher the men who fall in and out of their lives.
Wendy Wasserstein won the Pulitzer Prize, as well as Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for “The Heidi Chronicles.”  Her other credits include the plays “An American Daughter,” “Uncommon Women and Others,” “Isn’t It Romantic?” and the film, “The Object of My Affection.”  The Huntington produced “Uncommon Women and Others” in 1983, its second season.

Andrea Martin, originally announced to perform in the production, had to drop out due to a conflicting personal commitment.

Tony nominee Maureen Anderman's extensive New York theatre credits include "The Waverly Gallery," "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln" with Julie Harris, "You Can't Take It With You" with Jason Robards, and "Hamlet" and "Macbeth" at Lincoln Center.

Featured in the current film, "The Thing About My Folks," Mimi Lieber appeared in the 2002 Broadway revival of "I’m Not Rappaport," "The Heidi Chronicles" national tour and numerous regional theatre and national TV productions.
Deborah Offner's stage and television credits include numerous productions for the New York Shakespeare Festival.  She also appeared in the 2005 season of “Six Feet Under,” as well as "CSI,” "Party of Five” and the films "Cruel Intentions” and “Crossing Delancy.”

Director Nicholas Martin has helmed many acclaimed productions for the Huntington Theatre Company since his arrival in 2000, including “Dead End” (restaged this fall in Los Angeles) “Hedda Gabler,” “Betty’s Summer Vacation,” “Laughing Wild,” “The Rivals” and many more.
