Love, Loss, and What I Wore premiered on Broadway to rave reviews in 2009, and the show makes its Canadian premiere in Toronto. Based on a book by Ilene Beckerman, Love, Loss, and What I Wore was adapted for the stage by sisters Nora and Delia Ephron—Nora is the co-writer and director behind films such as Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, and Julie & Julia, and Delia is a co-writer for You've Got Mail and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. The play collects vignettes and monologues on clothing, accessories, and both the funny and the painful memories that women associate with them, creating a hilarious theatrical experience that's universal in its appeal, like Hawaiian pizza or the songs of Burt Bacharach.
The cast for the first cycle of the run, lasting from July 16–August 7, includes Andrea Martin, of SCTV and My Big Fat Greek Wedding fame; Louise Pitre, the Tony-nominated stage actress known for her roles in Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables; and Paula Brancati, nominated for a Gemini for her work on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Discover that you aren't the only one with evocative memories attached to your collection of feathered boas with the closetful of comedy that is Love, Loss, and What I Wore.

- Ms. Ephron’s antipathy to the purse stems from her habitual inability to keep hers properly organized and hygienic. In the chaos of its interior she sees a symbol of herself, as in a dark mirror smudged with old lipstick and smelling of spilled perfume. – Charles Isherwood, New York Times
- Full-ensemble comic sketches on topics like "Black" and "The Closet" and "The Dressing Room" are so impeccably timed and drolly delivered, under the direction of Karen Carpenter, they could be musical numbers. – Marilyn Stasio, Variety
- Love, Loss, and What I Wore tackles the travails of bra fittings, a late mother's beloved robe, and the hunt for a wedding dress — the perfect counterweight to a stressful day of jeans shopping. – Jennfier Armstrong, Entertainment Weekly
