New York, NY (7/27/2010) – Producer Daryl Roth announced today that four-time Tony® Award-nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Golda’s Balcony), Samantha Mathis (Lebanon, Pa.), and Jamie-Lynn Sigler (“The Sopranos”) will join upcoming casts of Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore in New York. Ms. Sigler rounds out the September (September 1 – October 3) cast, joining previously announced cast members Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza), Sandy Duncan (Peter Pan), “CBS Sunday Morning” correspondent Nancy Giles, and TV personality Stacy London (host of TLC’s “What Not To Wear”). Ms. Mathis and Ms. Feldshuh will join the October cast (October 6 – October 31). Additional October cast members will be announced shortly.
The August cast (July 28-August 29) features Jayne Houdyshell (Well; Love, Loss, and What I Wore’s March cast), Tony Award-winner Adriane Lenox (Doubt), Allison Mack (CW’s “Smallville”), Kate Mulgrew (“Star Trek”) and Kristine Nielsen (Les Liaisons Dangereuses).
Loss, and What I Wore opened in October 2009 and has been playing to sold-out houses at the Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street), where it’s broken all box office records and will soon celebrate its one-year anniversary. 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 production, which was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award, is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who perform in four-week cycles. Members of the rotating cast have included Samantha Bee, Kristin Chenoweth, Tyne Daly, Fran Drescher, Janeane Garofalo, Melissa Joan Hart, Carol Kane, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Rosie O’Donnell, Rhea Perlman, Caroline Rhea, Doris Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sherri Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Cobie Smulders, Rita Wilson and many more.
The performance schedule for Love, Loss, and What I Wore is 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. Tickets ($79.00) are available via Telecharge.com (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.)
A portion of the production’s proceeds benefit Dress for Success, a charity that provides work clothing and job support for low-income women. Audience members are invited to donate their gently-used purses and other accessories in the theatre lobby. In addition to its triumphant run at the Westside Theatre in NYC, Love, Loss, and What I Wore is also currently playing at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse and in Toronto at the Panasonic Theatre.
