Written by Delia Ephron and the late Nora Ephron, the evening at the Manhattan venue will star Lucy DeVito, Carol Kane, Natasha Lyonne, Rosie O'Donnell, and Tracee Ellis Ross. All four artists starred in the show during its celebrated Off-Broadway run. Karen Carpenter, who staged the original New York and Los Angeles productions, returns to direct.
Based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends, this play, according to press notes, “opens the closet on this and other sartorial queries by using clothes as a metaphor for matters far deeper than the average walk-in closet.”
The original production of Love, Loss, and What I Wore was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award. Other productions have played on six continents, in places including Cape Town, South Africa; The Philippines; Paris, France; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Canada. The play is now licensed throughout the globe.
