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.

This was an amazing show! I enjoyed everything - from the well choreographed dance routines to the song selection. There was a great mix of old favorites and tunes that I had not heard before.... The cast was terrific....and boy, can they belt out the tunes!
Quotes & Highlights
“Leiber and Stoller are the Rodgers and Hammerstein of rock’n’roll.”_ _—Cousin Brucie, WCBS-FM
“To the baby-boom generation, the songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are as sacrosanct as George Gershwin is to their parents.” _ —The New York Times_
Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock ‘n’ roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized ’50s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions.
Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, these classic tunes defined the golden age of rock with hits from Elvis, the Drifters, Dion, the Coasters, Ben E. King and many other pop legends. Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music — it’s compelling musical theatre.
