THE INTERNATIONAL HIT IS COMING TO CHICAGO!
Playing at The Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place
Beginning September 13, 2011
CHICAGO (March 15, 2011) – Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to announce that the smash international hit of LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE is kicking off its tour in Chicago at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut, Chicago) for six weeks, September 13 - October 23, 2011.
LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE, with its starry cast and wildly entertaining subject matter, is the toast of New York. This intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron and directed by Karen Carpenter, opened in October, 2009 at New York’s Westside Theatre to rave reviews and has been extended again and again by popular demand. Produced by Daryl Roth, this collection of vignettes and monologues is based on the best-seller 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.
Producer Daryl Roth says, “We are delighted to launch the national tour of LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE at the beautiful Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place. I look forward to sharing these funny, poignant and heart-warming stories with Chicago area audiences.”
The Associated Press calls LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE, “Funny and Poignant!” The New York Times says, “A show about matters of the heart and matters of the closet!” Forbes calls the show, “An act of brilliance! A must see!” Bloomberg Radio exclaims, “Nora and Delia Ephron are literary alchemists, expert at mixing the sentimental and the satirical and turning out something poignant!” Syndicated columnist Liz Smith says, “Sweet and Saucy! This is an evening that goes directly to the heart, soul and vanity of every woman, young and old!”
