Love, Loss, and What I Wore premiered on Broadway to rave reviews in 2009, and the show recently made its successful 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 second cycle of the run (August 10–September 4) includes Lauren Collins, who was nominated for a Gemini for her work on Degrassi: The Next Generation; Wendy Crewson, five-time Gemini Award winner and known for roles in 24, The Santa Clause, and Bicentennial Man; and Margot Kidder, best known for her role as Lois Lane in 1978’s Superman: The Movie which earned her a Saturn award. 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
