Superstar sisters Nora & Delia Ephron, writers of some of the most popular romantic comedies in history -- including Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally -- bring a hilarious and poignant collection of stories to the stage in Love, Loss and What I Wore. Based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, this show features women telling intimate stories inspired by the articles of clothing they were wearing at the time. As adapted by the Ephron sisters, masters of depicting the female psyche, Love, Loss and What I Wore casts a funny, surprising and touching light on moments that every woman will relate to. This PlayHouse production brings the show that Variety called "powerful, sweet and saucy" to the stage of the Lyceum Theater.

My only expectations was that the King would be bald. I guess since I saw "Brenner" when I was young I had a preconcieved idea. I do believe that it adds to the character of the king. My opinion. Our party was of six and all us us enjoyed the play immensity.
East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam and having been summoned by the King to serve as a tutor to his many children and wives, an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and learn to respect each other in this truly unique love story. The dazzling score of this classic show includes “Getting To Know You” and “I Whistle A Happy Tune.”
