Ivoryton Playhouse to Present LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE, 2/21-23
The immortal words of Nora Ephron are brought to life, amongst racks of clothes and reminiscences of favorite shoes, at the Ivoryton Playhouse - February 21st, 22nd, and 23rd.
Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore has become an international hit. With its compulsively entertaining subject matter, this intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron celebrated an accomplished two-and-a-half year run in New York's Westside Theatre. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman as well as the recollections of the Ephrons' friends.
The show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences domestically and overseas.
Directed by Playhouse Executive Director, Jacqueline Hubbard, the play features local actors and directors who are well known in the shoreline community. As well as Hubbard, the cast includes Maggie McGlone Jennings, who has directed several shows at The Playhouse, Jeanie Rapp who is known to local audiences as the artistic director of Margreta Stage, Sue Pynn and Beverley Taylor who are both regulars on The Playhouse stage.
