For women, making it into the boardroom in the 1980s was fraught with a very different set of concerns than Omarosa’s 15 minutes on The Apprentice. Caryl Churchill’s Broadway premiere of Top Girls takes us back to the decade of decadence at London’s Top Girls Employment Agency, where Marlene (played by Elizabeth Marvel) celebrates her climb to success as head of the company.
