Producer Daryl Roth announced today that Tichina Arnold, Sabrina Le Beauf, Didi Conn, Barbara Feldon, Kate Flannery, Judy Gold, Alicia Goranson, Aisha de Haas, Ashley Austin Morris, Loretta Swit and Maria Tucci will join upcoming casts of Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore at The Westside Theatre (407 W 43 Street, NYC).
Barbara Feldon ("Get Smart"), Aisha de Haas (Caroline, Or Change) and Ashley Austin Morris (Die Mommie Die; Love Loss' July cast) will join the October cast (October 6 - October 31), along with previously announced cast member Tovah Feldshuh (Irena's Vow). Morris will begin performances two weeks early, on September 21, replacing Jamie-Lynn Sigler. A fifth October cast member will be announced shortly.
Tichina Arnold ("Everybody Hates Chris"), former "Rosanne" star Alicia Goranson and Tony-nominee Maria Tucci (who most recently appeared on Broadway in Mary Stuart) will appear in the November cast (November 3 - December 5). Additional November cast members will be announced shortly.
Former cast members Judy Gold and Didi Conn will return this winter to join future casts of Love, Loss, and What I Wore, along with new cast members including Sabrina Le Beauf ("The Cosby Show"), Kate Flannery ("The Office") and Loretta Swit ("M*A*S*H") as the show enters its second smash year.
Loss, and What I Wore opened in October 2009 and has been playing to sold-out houses at The Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street), where it's broken all box office records and will soon celebrate its one-year anniversary. Directed by Karen Carpenter, this collection of stories is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends. Like the popular book, Love, Loss, and What I Wore uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to.
The production, which was honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award and a Broadway.com Audience Award, is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who perform in four-week cycles. Members of the rotating cast have included Samantha Bee, Kristin Chenoweth, Tyne Daly, Fran Drescher, Haylie Duff, Janeane Garofalo, Melissa Joan Hart, Carol Kane, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Rosie O'Donnell, Rhea Perlman, Caroline Rhea, Doris Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sherri Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Cobie Smulders, Rita Wilson and many more.
