The attached STAGE MAGAZINE article by American playwright Clare Boothe (Clare Boothe Luce 1903 1987) appeared in print shortly after the successful opening of her play, "The Women":

"Of course, writing plays wasn't exactly a flash of genius. I mean I am shewed in spots...But inspiration or calculation, it was frightfully lucky that I hit on writing plays, wasn't it? And it was so wonderfully fortunate that quite a lot of people that I'd met socially on Park Avenue, at very exclusive parties, people like cowboys, cooks, manicurists, nurses, hat-check girls, fitters, exchorines, declasse countesses, Westport intellectuals, Hollywood producers Southern girls and radical columnists, gave me such lovely material to write about."

Read a 1951 profile of a future First Lady: the young Nancy Reagan.
