Just how much there is to be nostalgic for becomes clear when you step into the 21st-century milieu of the Birkin-toting Manhattan socialites in Wendy Wasserstein’s witty Elements of Style. Brought to antic sitcom life by Cynthia Nixon, these professional shoppers and playdate organizers have no time for Isadora’s philosophical dilemmas and carnal longings. They’re too busy monitoring their weight (morning snack: ”four soybeans for protein and a chocolate chip — for fun!”), redecorating, and ruthlessly poaching each other’s rich Upper East Side husbands.
