Delaware Theatre Company has announced the cast of Daryl Roth's presentation of LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE, coming to the DTC stage in early March.
This intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, and 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. Proving that a great show is always in fashion, LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE, with its starry cast and compulsively entertaining subject matter, has become an international hit.
The Off Broadway hit opened at The Westside Theatre on October 1, 2009, where it broke all box office records. Since LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE opened, audiences around the globe have gotten the chance to experience it. The show has played on six continents, in places including: Cape Town, South Africa; The Philippines; Paris, France; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Canada and many more. Los Angeles' Geffen Theatre and Chicago's Broadway Playhouse both hosted extended runs, and the show completed its first national tour in 2012.
This special presentation runs at the Delaware Theatre Company Wednesday March 6th through Sunday March 17th.
