Paula Brancati, Andrea Martin, Louise Pitre, et al. Set for Love, Loss and What I Wore in Canada
Based on Ilene Beckerman's 1995 book about clothes and the memories they trigger, the production is directed by Karen Carpenter, and features a series of five-person casts that will play in four-week cycles.
Brancati. Martin, and Pitre will perform July 16 through to August 7, while Collins, Crewson, and Dale will appear August 10-September 4. Additional cast members will be announced shortly.
A portion of the production's proceeds will benefit the Toronto Chapter of Dress for Success, a charity that provides work clothing and job support for low-income women.
Brancati is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Jane Vaughn on Degrassi: The Next Generation, which also features Collins, who plays Paige Michalchuk. Crewson may be most familiar for her work on 24, where she plays Dr. Anne Packard. Dale's numerous theater credits include My One and Only, South Pacific and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the Stratford Festival. Martin won a Tony Award for her work in My Favorite Year and has been seen on Broadway in Oklahoma! and Fiddler on the Roof, among others. Pitre received a Tony nomination for her performance in Mamma Mia! and has been seen in other musicals such as Les Miserables, Annie Get Your Gun, and Song and Dance.
