About the show:
With its compulsively entertaining subject matter, this intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron celebrated an accomplished two-and-a-half year run in New York’s Westside Theatre. “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” is based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman as well as the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. The show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences domestically and overseas. Prepare for plenty of laughs and an exploration of why and how we’re connected to the clothes we wear. Previous productions of the show have included such actresses as Rosie O’Donnell, Sarah Jones, America Ferrera, Tyne Daly, Linda Lavin, Kathy Najimy, Parker Posey, Kristin Wiig and Blythe Danner. The show won several awards including the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience and the Broadway.com award for Favorite New Off Broadway Play.
