Production History

Why Love, Loss, and What I Wore again?

When we first did the show in March of 2013, in the old space across the street, we had a feeling that women would like it, but we had no idea that men would. (Some of them were repeat customers!) From the stage we saw audience members holding on to one another in solidarity and delight. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Six and a half years later, people still stop us on the street and say, “When are you going to do that one again?”

The show is short and funny, written by the crackerjack sister team of Nora and Delia Ephron, and it’s simple, too—no bells and whistles, just good words, and this time around, for a good cause.

The original cast is returning for the reprise: Anne Cote Hoffman, Jennifer Hubbard, Kimi Matthews, Mary Ann McCubbin, Wendy Persse, Tamara Sheffield, and Teri Steeleman. Claudia Galup, handing her role to Shari Graham, will direct this time around. (Catawba’s Missy Barnes directed the first one.) The team would like to thank Cindi Graham for bringing the script to Lee Street’s attention and Rod Oden for supporting the remount.

“Funny, compelling…Brought down the house…but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women’s search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer.” —NY Times.

“So funny and so powerful; so dear and sweet; so remindful of our female wiles, our worries, our insecurities, our remembrances of mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers—I think it can’t miss.” —
