Photo Flash: LOVE, LOSS Welcomes Kelly, Sullivan et al.
Last night, April 18, the company of LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE celebrated the newest cast members Minka Kelly and Susan Sullivan. Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron's Off Broadway hit Love, Loss, and What I Wore, is now in its second smash year at the Westside Theatre and also features Conchata Ferrell ("Two and a Half Men"), AnnaLynne McCord ("90210"), Anne Meara ("Sex and the City") and B. Smith (lifestyle expert and restaurateur).
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. 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, 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, Tyne Daly, Fran Drescher, Janeane Garofalo, Melissa Joan Hart, Carol Kane, Stacy London, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, 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 has played in Los Angles, Toronto, Sydney and more and recently announced that a touring production will kick-off at Chicago's Broadway Playhouse theatre beginning September 13, 2011.
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).
