Synopsis: Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with its starry rotating cast and compulsively entertaining subject matter, has become the toast of Off-Broadway. This intimate collection of stories is about to enter its second smash year. Like the popular book, the show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences in New York. January cast members include Alexis Bledel, Nikki Blonsky, Anita Gillette, Judy Gold, and Pauletta Washington. This production proudly supports Dress for Success. Audience members are invited to donate their gently-used purses and other accessories in the theatre lobby.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"I have always been happy not to have to carry a purse, but I am happier than ever at this lifelong good fortune after hearing Rosie O’Donnell describe the soul-scarring humiliation of possessing a messy handbag in “Love, Loss, and What I Wore,” a new show about matters of the heart and matters of the closet that opened on Thursday night at the Westside Theater. "

VARIETY REVIEW:

"Everything in a woman's closet holds a memory. Some are sweet, some are funny and some are so unbearably sad, you dare not touch those black cigarette pants (or that lace bustier or those ratty blue jeans) without your best friend at your side and a Xanax in your system. Scribes get the complex psychology of women's clothing and accessories (they get it, they get it!), but they extend a visual aid by opening the show with a matronly character named Gingy (Tyne Daly, the soul of womanly wisdom in her understanding and all-forgiving smile) who draws sketches of the various clothing items that figure in her memories."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Straight men will probably have a tough time at Nora and Delia Ephron's "Love, Loss, and What I Wore." Clothing and touchy-feely emotions are the order of the day in this collage play about women's relationships with apparel and the memories it evokes. Derived from Ilene Beckerman's slim memoir with illustrations, which recalls a lifetime through Brownie uniforms, wedding gowns, formal attire, and housedresses, the play employs a "Vagina Monologues" format, with a rotating cast of women sitting before music stands and reading from scripts. Hoots of recognition and muffled sobs could be heard as they re-created moments both great and small in a galaxy of women's experiences."

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"Proust had his madeleines. Women have, as touchstones to memory, every item of clothing they've ever worn. Taste -- in the physical, sensory realm -- may be one surefire link to recalling le temps perdu, but women who've wrestled throughout their lives with questions of taste in the fashion sense know that every garment tells a story. That's one big reason that women (and most men, who have their own colorful history of fashion triumphs and faux pas) will readily relate to the themes of Love, Loss, and What I Wore, now at the Westside Theatre. So insightful and entertaining is this survey of sartorial preoccupations and the deeper questions underlying them that multiple viewings would be advisable. "

NEW YORK THEATRE GUIDE REVIEW:

"The only thing wrong with this play is the title, Love, Loss and What I Wore. The rest is fabulous. The title comes from the book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman. That book inspired the Ephron sisters to invite women to talk about their sartorial side, and the stories were massaged into this excellent evening, so I suppose the title can’t be all bad, even though it makes the show sound ever so much less than it is."
