It was announced today that Bloomingdale's will honor "New York's most fashionable show," Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with a special window display inspired by the play. The special Love, Loss, and What I Wore window will be located on the Lexington Avenue side of Bloomingdale's flagship location (1000 Third Avenue at 59th Street) and will be unveiled to the public on Friday, January 8. The iconic retailer is the official costumer for Love, Loss, and What I Wore, providing clothing for each of the rotating casts.
Michele Lee (Tale of the Allergist's Wife), Tony Award-winner Debra Monk (Curtains), Tracee Ellis Ross ("Girlfriends") and Casey Wilson ("Saturday Night Live") join the rotating cast of Love, Loss and What I Wore tonight, alongside the returning Katie Finneran (Noises Off). Love, Loss, and What I Wore, an intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, directed by Karen Carpenter, opened October 1, 2009 to rave reviews at The Westside Theatre (407 West 43 Street, NYC) and has been extended through March 2010.
Love, Loss, and What I Wore is based on Ilene Beckerman's popular book, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends. Like the 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.
A portion of the production's proceeds will benefit Dress for Success, a charity that provides work clothing and job support for low-income women. Audience members are invited to donate their gently-used purses and other accessories in the theatre lobby.
Tickets ($75.00) are available via Telecharge.com (212-239-6200) and in-person at The Westside Theatre Box Office (407 West 43rd Street). The performance schedule is as follows: Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
