Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A Broadway hit from the early 1990s is given an excellent performance on this well-produced audio. Music and sound effects provide outstanding support for the superb professionals working before a live audience. Taking place in London at a gathering to celebrate American expatriate sister Sarah's birthday, this comedy explores family and the familiar relationships of three Jewish sisters from Brooklyn with their male companions from 1930s youth to 1990s London. It is fast paced, quite clever, and often hilarious. L.A. Theatre Works appears to have made an extraordinary commitment to bringing modern and classical theater to audio in such an effective manner. Highly recommended.ACliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH

Format: Paperback
Reading a play by Wendy Wasserstien is always a delight, but even though all of her writings are to be savored, The Sisters Rosensweig exhibits an important mark in the author's maturing style. In spite of this maturation, however, the story line never grows stale and Ms. Wasserstein never fails to draw from her reader a smile and a laugh, and give to give us a refreshed sense of the type of person we want to be--it's self-help through fiction!
The Sisters Rosensweig follows the reunion of three Jewish sisters who come together for a visit in Queen Anne's Gate, London, and the joys and struggles they share concerning romance, careers, childhood, and family--joys and struggles with which we all identify, not only as women but as human beings. Thank you, Ms. Wasserstien, for another delightful treat!

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Aco on November 11, 2004
Format: Paperback
The Sisters Rosensweig is a terrific, sweet and very humane play about a gathering of people, in particular three Jewish American sisters in London in 1991. Each of the sisters is stuck in some way, trapped by time in their mid-lives. They are joined at oldest sister Sara's London home by Sara's daughter, and several male suitors/friends.

Throughout Wasserstein keeps the tone light and the wit cracking. Everyone of these characters is intelligent and visible, knows the world yet remains perplexed by their own lives.

To me this is the type of affirming family bound play that warms, and though life remains elusive in many ways, the sisters know they have each other and use that love and charity to sweet degrees.

Recommended, smart and funny.
