Jayne Houdyshell, Tony Award-winner Adriane Lenox, Allison Mack, Kate Mulgrew, and Kristine Nielsen have joined Nora and Delia Ephron’s Off-Broadway hit, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, at the Westside Theatre through August 29.
Guests at the July 29 performance included Sandy Duncan (who will join the show on September 1), Cybill Shepherd, and writer Illene Beckerman.
Based on 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 show is produced by Daryl Roth.
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.
