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.

I enjoyed this light-hearted and fun play very much. The acting was great and I was impressed with the excellent delivery of many significant monologues. I laughed fairly hard throughout the entire show as did the 5 people who were with me. I'd recommend this to to anyone up for a pleasant night out.

When Karen, a straight-talking, beer-for-breakfast, ass-kicking rollergirl, rolled into Cecelia’s life — literally — there was bound to be a collision. Cecelia “isn’t currently developing her social life,” but this Casanova on wheels won’t be ignored. Two complete opposites find themselves living together, driving each other crazy and changing each other’s lives forever. But The Odd Couple this ain’t — punk rock, mystic oracles, roller derby, some “adult” language and a healthy dose of vegetables are just a few of the elements that make this world-premiere comedy a true original.
Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, the play’s director and award-winning Artistic Director of Moxie Theatre, says, “In one sense it’s a straightforward romantic comedy, but at the same time it’s a poetic and visceral look into female sexuality and the struggle to be your complete sexual self.”
Starring Jeannine Marquie, Chrissy Burns, Tim Parker and Susan Peck
