**** Recommended **** I really enjoyed Steppenwolf Theatre’s production of “The Roommate”, which was a warm, funny, ‘chick’ play about two unlikely women who become roommates. Watching these women – an Iowa housewife and a vegan from Brooklyn – circling each other, negotiating terms, was a lot of fun. It’s not a particularly deep play, but “The Roommate” is good summer fare. 3 ½ Spotlights
