Mothers, daughters, wives, friends: these are the women of “The Women”. Based on Clare Boothe Luce’s Broadway success and the hit 1939 movie, this sparkling update is set in Manhattan and features an all-star, all-female cast. It says a lot about what it means to be today’s woman – and all of it’s funny! The story starts with beautiful, smart, accomplished Mary Haines (Meg Ryan) discovering her husband is cheating on her. It’s a time when friends are needed, so Mary’s gal pals (Annette Bening, Jada Pinkett Smith and Debra Messing) and mother (Candice Bergen) rally around with advice, cocktails and shopping. The Wife vs. The Other Woman (Eva Mendes): sharpen your claws for a timeless – and wonderfully witty – battle.
