Davis (portrayed by Daytime Emmy Award Winner, Darnell Williams) and Ruth (portrayed by Tamara Scott) are two strangers desperate to make a human connection in Sightlines, by Emmy Award nominee Mark Eisman. In this intimate two-person play, Ruth struggles with bitter sense that her life has been little more than a series of betrayals, which has caused her to blur the lines between reality and an unreal, dreamlike sense of self. When she meets Davis, and he extends a helping hand, they smash through an ever-blurring reality into a Lewis Carroll-like world in a love story that defies most conventional preconceptions. This unique production unfolds in an otherworldly set that is a true feast for the senses, accompanied by a haunting original score. Learn More

Seeing a show at The Westside Theater is a treat because its such a small theater. There are some problematically placed poles but they are slim enough to look around easily by leaning left or right.
Seeing a show with a killer cast at The Westside Theater is an experience! Although this is a staged reading with a rotating cast the women create a polished, thought evoking piece of theater. On a base level the show is about clothes women wore that defined who they were at specific points in their lives. If you delve deeper its not really about the clothes. Its about women. Their feelings and self expression. Their relationships with themselves and others. How these emotions are transfered, amplified, defined, ect. by specific articles, styles and iconic fashion movements.
You don't need to love clothes or even care about them to love this play. Clothes are the vehicle the emotions driving them are universal.
The cast for this play is a rotation of accomplished actress'. The cast I saw included: Carole Kane, Natasha Lyonne, Lucy DeVito, Katie Finneran and Capathia Jenkins. Each women performed the well crafted piece with generosity and humanity. I have no doubt future casts will do the same.
Quotes & Highlights
- "This is an evening that goes directly to the heart, soul and vanity of every woman, young or old." --Liz Smith
- "It’s like a big bowl of buttered popcorn (but calorie-free!) for the women who can share deeply in the particulars of experience dissected and discussed." --New York Times
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.
