Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a series of monologues and uses a rotating cast of five principal women. The subject matter of the monologues includes women’s relationships and wardrobes and at times the interaction of the two, using the female wardrobe as a time capsule of a woman’s life.
The show was initially presented in 2008 at Guild Hall in New York and then as a benefit series at the DR2 Theatre in New York in early 2009. Later the same year, the show was produced Off-Broadway as an ongoing commercial theatrical production, where it continues to run as the second-longest running show in the theatre’s history. The production and its cast received positive critical attention. The production won the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience as well as the 2010 Broadway.com Audience Award for Favorite New Off-Broadway Play. Nora Ephron said: “We keep re-casting it so we can get really great actresses to come for four weeks. It is really hard to get really good people to work Off-Broadway for six months because it does not pay much, but you can get them for four weeks.” Notable actors who have taken part in its rotating cast are Tyne Daly, Rosie O’Donnell, Mia Farrow, Susan St James,
Kristin Chenoweth, Fran Drescher, Brooke Shields and Loretta Swit.
