Hollywood’s helicopter moms vie for Power in ‘Talk’

“Girls Talk” is Roger Kumble’s latest play about narcissistic Hollywood power brokers, but the sardonic black comedy is not set within the studio system. Rather, it revolves around status-climbing mommies embroiled in their own power plays: nanny poaching, and — in the most cutthroat game of all — securing coveted spots for their tots in the elite day schools. They are specifically Jewish moms whose children attend the fictional Temple Jerusalem preschool in Los Angeles.
