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

Description

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.
