From July 28-August 29, the cast will feature Jayne Houdyshell, Adriane Lenox, Allison Mack, Kate Mulgrew, and Kristine Nielsen. Next up, September 1-October 3, will be Victoria Clark, Sandy Duncan, Nancy Giles, Stacy London, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. From October 6-31, the cast will include Tovah Feldshuh and Samantha Mathis, with additional casting to be announced.
Based on Ilene Beckerman's 1995 book about clothes and the memories they trigger, the production is directed by Karen Carpenter, and recently won a 2010 Drama Desk Award. The production features a series of five-person casts that will play in four-week cycles.
A portion of the production's proceeds will 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 theater's lobby.
