Love, Loss and What I Wore

Unabashedly girly — in a good way!

Written by Nora and Delia Ephron and based on the book by Ilene Beckerman, the show is a scrapbook of stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear. Accessorizing these tales, which are mostly comic but often sad or sentimental too, are the mothers who disapprove, the men who disappear, the sisters who’ve got your back.

Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends (and the Men who love them) will all enjoy a hilarious night of nostalgia, relatable wardrobe woes, the ever present worry - “Does This Make Me Look Fat?” You will find yourself nodding along as these amazing women spin a tale that every one of us has experienced at one time or another while bemoaning our closet’s shortcomings.

Adults Refreshments will be offered courtesy of Jeff’s Spirits on Main. Available in the lobby prior to showtime and during intermission.

Note Worthy: The Ephron Sisters are well know for their film contributions such as: Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and When Harry Met Sally. Love, Loss and What I Wore has been host to many famous actresses, including, Kristen Chenoweth, Carol Kane, Mia Farrow, Susan St.James, Rosie O’Donnell, Tyne Daly, Eve Plum, Rhea Pearlman, Melissa Joan Hart, Loretta Swit and many more.
