She'd been hospitalized with lymphoma for the past month.
A sad coda to the final scene of *The Heidi Chronicles*: Wasserstein is survived by her 6-year-old daughter.
Jan. 1993, The Heidi Chronicles, with Ron Varela (now, sadly, also gone), Mary Starkey -- and wasn't Troy Nickerson in that show, too?
Summer '93, Civic, Uncommon Women and Others Bobo didn't see this show, but did see a good student production of Uncommon Women, done in the round at EWU circa '97 (?)
Interplayers did The Sisters Rosensweig in May '96
I organized a play reading in my neighborhood of *An American Daughter* back in '97 or so.
And I'm probably forgetting other local productions -- sorry. Please write with details and memories.
I love "Heidi,* and I remember being so happy when WW won the Pulitzer - the third woman to do so in the '80s. But then women didn't win again until (three more of them) in '98-2002. (God, this is turning into a trivia contest. I had to look that last part up.)
Anyway, she will be missed. Very funny, very full of life, and -- this part is scary -- only 5 years older than me.
Very sad. I hope her daughter will be OK.
