“ L O V E ,   L O S S,   A N D    W H A T    I    W O R E ”


New York, NY (12/22/2010) – Audiences around the globe will now get a chance to see Love, Loss, and What I Wore, the Off Broadway hit written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron and presented by Daryl Roth.  Including its premiere production in New York, already in its second smash year at the Westside Theatre in NYC, the show will play across five continents in more than eight countries including Australia, France, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Scandinavia and the Philippines.

“One of the best things about Love, Loss, and What I Wore is how universal the stories are,” Daryl Roth said.  “It’s such a treat to know that these wonderful stories will be seen by audiences across the world.”

The international production schedule is as follows:

Australia:  Sydney Opera House (the Playhouse): December 29, 2010 – January 16, 2011

France: Paris: January 11, 2011 – April 2, 2011

Brazil: Rio de Janeiro: January 2011

Mexico: April 2011

These productions follow record-breaking runs at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and Toronto’s Panasonic Theatre and a Spanish production in Buenos Aires, Argentina in July 2010.  Additional details are forthcoming for productions in the Philippines, Germany and Scandinavia. 

The current Off Broadway cast of Love, Loss, and What I Wore(through January 9, 2011) includes Brenda Braxton (Chicago), Didi Conn (Grease), Kate Flannery (“The Office”), Loretta Swit (“MASH”) and Mary Testa (Xanadu).  Upcoming cast members include Alexis Bledel, Pauletta Washington, Anita Gillette, Judy Gold and many more.

Loss, and What I Wore opened in October 2009 and is now in its second smash year at the Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street), where it’s broken all box office records.   Directed by Karen Carpenter, this collection of stories is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends.  Like the popular book, Love, Loss, and What I Wore uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to. 

The New York production, which was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award and a Audience Award, is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who perform in five-week cycles.   Members of the rotating cast have included Samantha Bee, Kristin Chenoweth, Tyne Daly, Fran Drescher, Janeane Garofalo, Melissa Joan Hart, Carol Kane, Stacy London, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Rosie O’Donnell, Rhea Perlman, Caroline Rhea, Doris Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sherri Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Cobie Smulders, Rita Wilson and many more.

The updated performance schedule for Love, Loss, and What I Woreis as follows: Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 3 p.m.  & 7 p.m. (with no performances 12/7, 12/24, 12/25, 1/1, 1/11 and an added performance Monday, 1/3 at 8 p.m.). Tickets ($79.00) are available via (212-239-6200) and in-person at the Westside Theatre Box Office (407 West 43rd Street).  Same-day general rush tickets ($25.00, cash only) are available at the Westside Theatre box office, beginning at noon.  (Limited to two rush tickets per person.  Seats are based on availability; some are limited view.)
