LOVE, LOSS Wins Drama Desk Award for Best Unique Theatrical Experience!
Love, Loss and What I Wore is this year's recipient of the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Best Unique Theatrical Experience.
Love, Loss and What I Wore opened last fall and continues to run at The Westside Theater with a rotating cast of entertainment's finest female performers. The summertime cast will include Penny Fuller, Sharon Lawrence, Diane Neal, Sherri Shepherd, Cobie Smulders and Myra Lucretia Taylor of Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron?s smash hit show.
Emmy Award-winner Penny Fuller ("The Elephant Man"), Diane Neal ("Law & Order: SVU"), Daytime Emmy Award-winner Sherri Shepherd ("The View") and Cobie Smulders ("How I Met Your Mother") will be part of the cast beginning Wednesday, May 26 and performing through Sunday, June 27. Sharon Lawrence ("NYPD Blue") and Myra Lucretia Taylor (Broadway?s Nine) will be part of the July cast (Wednesday, June 30 through Sunday, July 25). Tickets for the show are now on-sale through August 29, 2010 and additional casting will be announced shortly.
Love, Loss, and What I Wore opened in October 2009 and has been playing to sold-out houses at the Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street). Directed by Karen Carpenter, this collection of stories is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons? friends. Like the popular book, Love, Loss, and What I Wore uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to. The production is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who perform in four- week cycles.
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 ($75.00) are available via Telecharge.com (212-239-6200) and in-person at the Westside Theatre Box Office (407 West 43rd Street). Same-day general rush tickets ($25.00, cash only) are available at the Westside Theatre box office, beginning at noon. (Limited to two rush tickets per person. Seats are based on availability; some are limited view.)
