New Play Love, Loss, And What I Wore to Feature Daly, Danner, O'Donnell, Posey & More in Benefit Evenings
Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron's new play "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" will be given six benefit readings on Monday evenings, starting on February 2nd. The play, directed by Karen Carpenter, is about clothes and the memories they trigger. It is based on the book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman. The play is currently in development. The cast of five women will alternate each week and will be revealed at curtain time. Already set and committed to perform (based on scheduling) are: Tyne Daly, Blythe Danner, Kristen Johnston, Sarah Jones, Rosie O'Donnell, Parker Posey, Karyn Quackenbush, Rondi Reed, Kristen Schaal, Marlo Thomas, and Joyce Van Patten.
Proceeds from the evening will be donated to Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that provides interview clothing and job support for low-income women getting back into the workforce. Audience members are invited to donate their gently-used accessories and purses, which will be collected in the lobby
All seats are priced at $50.00 and performance time is 8:00 PM. Tickets are available through the following website: http://www.lovelossthebenefit.org/. The DR2 Theatre is located at 103 East 15th Street, east of Union Square.
