Hey, HuffPosters, my sister Delia and I have written a play. It's called "Love, Loss and What I Wore" and it's based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the stories of our friends and friends of friends. It's a series of pieces performed by five wonderful actresses, all about clothes we've loved and the memories they trigger: the powder blue strapless prom dress, the nightmare of the bra saleslady, the tragedy of the purse, our mothers, our mothers, our mothers and more. We're workshopping it in New York for six Monday nights, February 2, 9, 16, 23 and March 2, 9. It's a benefit for Dress for Success, at the DR2 Theater on E. 15th Street, and among the actresses taking part (there are five each night) are Joy Behar, Tyne Daly, Blythe Danner, Julie White, America Ferrara, Samantha Bee, Parker Posey, Sarah Jones, Rosie O'Donnell, Marlo Thomas, Casey Wilson, Debi Mazur, Marian Seldes, Kathy Najimy and others...It's sort of "The Vagina Monologues" but without the vaginas.
If you would like to come see it, go to www.LoveLossthebenefit.com for tickets, or call Telecharge at 212-239-6200. The show starts at 8. Tickets are $50 (for a great cause).
