Love, Loss, and What I Wore

Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with its starry rotating cast and compulsively entertaining subject matter, has become the toast of Off-Broadway. This intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron and directed by Karen Carpenter, is about to enter its second smash year at New York's Westside Theatre. Produced by Daryl Roth, Love, Loss, and What I Wore is based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends. Like the popular book, 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 in New York. "Enthralling! You'll have such a good time," raves WOR's Joan Hamburg, while syndicated columnist Liz Smith simply states, "This is an evening that goes directly to the heart, soul and vanity of every woman, young or old."



A portion of ticket sales goes to benefit Dress For Success. Donations of nearly-new purses and professional totes are welcome and will be collected in the lobby prior to each performance.
