Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lisa Loomer (born 1956 in New York) is a playwright and screenwriter of Spanish and Romanian ancestry who has also worked as an actress and stand-up comic. She is best known for her play The Waiting Room, in which three women from different time periods meet in a modern doctor's waiting room, each suffering from the effects of their various societies' cosmetic body modification practices (foot binding, corsetry, and breast implantation). She also co-wrote the screenplay for the film Girl Interrupted. Loomer is an alum of the New Dramatists and was a 1985 playwright-in-residence at the Intar Theatre in New York City. Many of her plays deal with the experiences of Latinos and Hispanic-Americans, and with various aspects of contemporary family life.show more
