The Playwrights Horizons Line-up

In programming the 2007–2008 calendar, Sanford has taken a considerable risk. In its 35 years, Playwrights Horizons has developed last- ing affiliations with many of the theater's luminaries—Christopher Durang, Richard Nelson, A.R. Gurney, James Lapine, William Finn, etc. Nearly every season, these names grace the Playwrights Horizons 42nd Street marquee. Nearly every season, that is, except this one. For the first time in decades, Playwrights Horizons has devoted its entire schedule to early-career writers, with a particular emphasis on female dramatists.
In case you missed it last week, check out Alexis Soloski's sit-down with Playwrights AD Tim Sanford and profiles of the 4 writers he's staking the season on: Kate Fodor, Sarah Treem, Jordan Harrison, and Sarah Ruhl.

Okay, I guess Ruhl doesn't necessarily count as underexposed anymore...

Would it be completely wrong to say Ruhl, if not overexposed, is, at least, exposed?

In a manner of speaking?
