Jenny Allen, Eve Plumb, et al. Join Cast of LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE in November
Producer Daryl Roth announced today that stand up comedian and writer Jenny Allen (I Got Sick Then I Got Better), TV and stage veteran Eve Plumb ("The Brady Bunch") and "Gossip Girl" actress Amanda Setton will join the upcoming cast of the hit Off Broadway show Love, Loss, and What I Wore. They join current cast member Zuzanna Szadkowski ("Gossip Girl"), who will stay on for her fourth cast, and previously announced cast member Maddie Corman (Next Fall) in a run that begins Wednesday, November 2 through Sunday, December 4 at The Westside Theatre (407 West 43 Street).
It was also announced today that Love, Loss, and What I Wore alumnae Loretta Swit (‘Hot Lips' Houlihan on "MASH") and Myra Lucretia Taylor (Nine) will return to the show as part of the December cast, beginning Wednesday, December 7 through Sunday, December 30.
Written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, opened in October 2009 at The Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street), where it's broken all box office records and is now in its third smash year. Based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends, and directed by Karen Carpenter, this collection of stories dares to ask "Can't we all just stop pretending anything is ever going to be the new black?" Love, Loss, And What I Wore opens the closet on this and other sartorial queries by using clothes as a metaphor for matters far deeper than the average walk-in closet.
The production, which was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award and a Broadway.com Audience Award, is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who perform in five-week cycles. Members of the rotating cast have included Samantha Bee, Alexis Bledel, Kristin Chenoweth, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Tyne Daly, Fran Drescher, Janeane Garofalo, Melissa Joan Hart, Carol Kane, Minka Kelly, Stacy London, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, AnnaLynne McCord, Anne Meara, Rosie O'Donnell, Rhea Perlman, Caroline Rhea, Doris Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sherri Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Cobie Smulders, Rita Wilson and many more.
In addition to its New York production, Love, Loss, and What I Wore recently kicked off a national tour at the Broadway Playhouse in Chicago, where it plays through December 4, 2011 and has played in Los Angeles, Toronto, Sydney and more.
The performance schedule for Love, Loss, and What I Wore is as follows: Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets ($79.00) are available via Telecharge.com ( 212-239-6200 ) and in-person at The Westside Theatre Box Office (407 West 43rd Street).
