Written by sisters Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore is an intimate collection of stories based on the best-seller 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 to which all women can relate. The show opened in New York City in 2009 at The Westside Theatre, where it has broken that theater's box-office records, and was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award and a Broadway.com Audience Award. Love, Loss, and What I Wore has been produced in more than eight countries and in cities throughout the United States. The show's Arizona debut was presented at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts in January 2012.
Produced by Daryl Roth and directed by Karen Carpenter, Love, Loss, and What I Wore is performed by a rotating cast of five actresses.
