Karyn Quackenbush, Joyce van Patten to Join Cast of LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE
Producer Daryl Roth just announced the complete cast for the final month of the long-running hit show Love, Loss, and What I Wore. Karyn Quackenbush, who has been associated with the show as performer and standby since its first readings in 2009, and Joyce Van Patten, who starred as 'Gingy' in the September 2011 cast, will join previously announced cast members
Sierra Boggess, Ally Walker and Erica Watson, performing Wednesday, February 29 through Sunday, March 25, which marks the show's 1,013th and final performance.
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. 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 La La Anthony, 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, Eve Plumb, Caroline Rhea, Doris Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sherri Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Cobie Smulders, Rita Wilson and many more. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is currently on tour starring Emily Dorsch, Daisy Eagan, Sonia Manzano, Loretta Swit and Myra Lucretia Taylor.
