Die-hard theater fan Hillary Clinton is continuing to work through all New York has to offer at the moment. On Thursday night, Clinton showed up at the Off Broadway play Gloria: A Life, alongside her friend activist Jill Iscol, to two standing ovations from the crowd, according to a source. The play’s prolific producer Daryl Roth, as well as Gloria Steinem, its subject, were also in attendance. Completing the collection of accomplished women was designer Diane von Furstenberg, who spoke up during the play’s Act Two talking circle to toast Steinem. “You say you don’t have daughters, but we are all your daughters and sisters, granddaughters, and soon-to-be great-granddaughters,” Furstenberg said. Clinton also recently showed up at To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway with her husband, though it remains an open question whether she’ll come to see the forthcoming play about herself.
