Photo Flash: Schreiber Studios Honors Nixon & Wasserstein
Wasserstein, who died of complications from lymphoma on January 30th of this year at the age of 55, won much acclaim over the course of almost three decades for writing plays that with wit, warmth and insight, confronted a range of feminist issues. Her plays included Uncommon Women and Others, The Sisters Rosensweig, Isn't It Romantic, An American Daughter and The Heidi Chronicles, which is commonly regarded as her masterpiece and won both a Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Third, a critical and commercial hit at Lincoln Center, was the last new Wasserstein work to be presented.
Nixon, who recently starred in Rabbit Hole, previously appeared on Broadway in The Women, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, Indiscretions (Tony nomination), Angels in America, The Heidi Chronicles, Hurlyburly and The Real Thing (simultaneously) and The Philadelphia Story. She became internationally known as Miranda on TV's "Sex and the City."
