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.

In a word, don't miss this one - GO!
All through the production, I kept thinking, "Where is that Des McAnuff guy???" and, "Great potential, great potential! Shorten the first act!" Also, "Haven't I seen this show before? Oh, yeh ... sort of ... it was called 'Rent!'" Both date and I enjoyed the production, and will keep an eye out for this new company.
I have followed David McBean's work for a year or so, now, having first seen him in 'Fully Committed,' and he is just so special; fascinating to watch. And, now, to learn he can sing! What a treat!
You know them all: the needy ex-girlfriend, the guy with a commitment problem, the ex-trophy wife, the hermaphrodite … O.K., perhaps not the last one, but these and several other easily recognizable characters all come to the stage in the brand new musical, “So Here’s the Thing …”
With a cast of eleven distinct personalities, the play tells its entertaining story from four separate perspectives, all of which soon overlap.
The first tale, for instance, is told by Jade Hillman, the rebellious teenage daughter with a pill-popping, alcoholic, several-surgeries-later mother and an infatuation with her gay best friend. Several scenes later, her brother Paul returns home from college with his roommate Shayne. While Paul suffers the perils of falling for the wrong girl, Shayne, born a hermaphrodite, is faced with a new hurdle as he discovers yet another “condition.” Other characters include the twentysomething best-friends-since-forever girls, the gymrat, the “nice guy,” and the bisexual player.
Each of their stories eventually meld into the surprising and sobering climax as they speak on issues of commitment, timing, choices and fate.
