Tyne Daly, Blythe Danner, Kristen Johnston, Sarah Jones, Rosie O'Donnell, Parker Posey, Rondi Reed, Kristen Schaal, Marlo Thomas, Joyce Van Patten, and Karyn Quackenbush will participate in benefit readings of Nora and Delia Ephron's adaptation of Love, Loss and What I Wore. Karen Carpenter will direct the Monday-night readings.
The play is based on the 1995 book by Ilene Beckerman, and is about clothes and the memories they trigger. The five-person cast will alternate each week, with actor names revealed at curtain time.
Proceeds will go to "Dress for Success," a charity that provides interview clothing and job support for low-income women getting back into the workforce. Audience members are also asked to donate "gently used accessories and purses," which will be collected in the lobby.
