About This Show

One of the most witty and stylish American comedies of all time, The Women offers an acidic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of a group of wealthy Manhattan socialites. Mary Haines’ society girlfriends know a secret about her husband, and between the beauty parlors, the department stores and the dinner parties, something’s sure to slip. Claire Boothe Luce’s dishy, decadent 1936 classic comes to vivid life on the Old Globe stage in a major, large-scale production, as these sophisticated ladies use every weapon in their arsenal to fight for love, happiness and personal dignity.

The Old Globe presents an extremely stylish and often well acted revival of Clare Boothe Luce’s now-dated social satire.
