REVIEW: Five Women Wearing the Same Dress’ gets five stars, wows audiences

Five Women Wearing the Same DressDaily Californian Review by By

When local director Zara Benner chose the 1993 comedy “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” for her winter staged reading, she had a tremendous script to vivify. Written by Oscar and Emmy-winning screenwriter Alan Ball (“American Beauty,” “Six Feet Under”), “Five Women” veers back and forth from playful to tragic, providing rich material for the small, almost exclusively female cast.
