LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE to End Off-Broadway Run 3/25
Producer Daryl Roth announced today that the long-running Off Broadway favorite Love, Loss, and What I Wore will close on Sunday, March 25, 2012 after playing for two and a half years and 1,013 performances. (March 15th marks the show's landmark 1,000 performance.)
"Being able to share the intimate collection of stories in Love, Loss, and What I Wore with audiences all over the world, and see it find its place in the cultural landscape, has been incredibly fulfilling," Ms. Roth said. "I am very proud of how many women this production has touched – both on stage and off. We have had 32 rotating casts, and 120 actresses have participated during our New York run. The emotional resonance and personal connection people have to this show has been overwhelming."
The Off Broadway hit, written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, directed by Karen Carpenter and based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, opened at The Westside Theatre on October 1, 2009, where it broke all box office records and recouped its entire investment in just eleven weeks.
Since Love, Loss, and What I Wore opened, audiences around the globe have gotten the chance to experience it. The show has played on six continents, in places including: Cape Town, South Africa; The Philippines; Paris, France; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Canada and many more. Los Angeles' Geffen Theatre and Chicago's Broadway Playhouse both hosted extended runs, and the show is currently in Detroit, MI (through March 4) as part of the national tour.
Tickets ($79.00) are available via Telecharge.com (212-239-6200) and in-person at The Westside Theatre box office (407 West 43rd Street). Same-day general rush tickets ($25.00, cash only) are available at the box office, beginning at noon. (Limited to two rush tickets per person. Seats are based on availability; some are limited view.) The schedule for Love, Loss, and What I Wore is as follows: Wednesday at 2 PM & 8 PM, Thursday – Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM & 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM & 7 PM.
