'Love, Loss and What I Wore' to be staged at Greenwich Library
On Sunday, October 7 at 2 p.m., Greenwich Library will present an M&M Productions performance of the play Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Nora Ephron and her sister, Delia. The plan ran for several years off-Broadway, closing last March.
Liz Smith declared that Love, Loss, and What I Wore is "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." And the LA Times described the show as an "affirming chick outing that makes you want to rip off your Spanx and have another cosmo. Men...may come and go, but a killer outfit is forever. Even if you can't get into it anymore." The play is made up of many monologues that create a mosaic of all ages of life.
Four actresses share stories common to all women with both humor and sentiment. This production is directed by Cos Cob resident Larry Schneider, who directed previous M&M productions of Almost, Maine, Rabbit Hole, Jake's Women, Collected Stories and Three Tall Women. It will feature Connecticut residents Karen Quinn-Panzer and Andrea Garmun and New York residents Kathy Files DiBiasi, and Olivia Rerek. Kathy performed in a Greenwich production of the Pulitzer prize-winning Crimes of the Heart, and Andrea also performed locally in a production of Neil Simon's Fools, both of which were directed by Schneider.
Free and open to all through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and private donors. Cole Auditorium doors open at 1:45 pm. For more information, contact Alice Bonvenuto at (203) 622-7919.
