Quotable Quote:
“It’s complicated because Nora [Ephron] isn’t here, but she’s here. The whole experience has been that kind of a journey, where working on the play has been so wonderful and the cast is so great and everybody’s so talented, and on the flip side of it, you miss the person who I got to collaborate with for nine months. But ultimately at the end, I think it’s a great play and a triumph for Nora. It’s very New York. It’s smart and elegant and raw and rough and intimate and in your face—all the things that New York is.” — Wolfe, in an interview with Broadway.com, 4/13
