Love, Loss, and What I Wore

Love, Loss, and What I Wore

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 an international hit. This intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron and directed by Karen Carpenter, has entered 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 and now across the country.
