YOU WANNA BE ON TOP?
For women, making it into the boardroom in the 1980s was fraught with a very different set of concerns than Omarosas 15 minutes on The Apprentice. Caryl Churchills Broadway premiere of Top Girls takes us back to the decade of decadence at Londons Top Girls Employment Agency, where Marlene (played by Elizabeth Marvel) celebrates her climb to success as head of the company. With an all-star cast featuring Mary Beth Hurt, Martha Plimpton, and Marisa Tomei, the show prompts us to question whether the sacrifices were willing to make and the values we place on getting ahead in a so-called mans world are really worth the ride.
