Do you remember……
Twirling in rainbow skirts during childhood birthday parties?
Feeling embarrassed buying your very first bra?
Buying a pair of killer red hells to get over your ex?
Walking down the aisle in Mom’s wedding gown to be with the person you will forever cherish?

Each milestone in a woman’s life is captured with laughter, tears, and the special piece of clothing she wears during those moments. A woman’s clothes and accessories are not only expressions of her unique tastes and amazing personality but are reflections of the memories that define who she is today. Behind each halter top, faded pair of jeans, cocktail dress, painful set of stilettos, and designer handbag, she has a story to tell.

The show is based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman, and has featured notable actresses such as Jane Lynch (Glee), Rosie O’Donnell, Brooke Shields (Blue Lagoon, Grease), Betty White (Golden Girls), Rita Wilson, Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray), Fran Drescher (The Nanny),  Jamie Lynn Siegler (The Sopranos and Entourage), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Kathy Najimy  (Sister Act movie series), Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked), to name just a few.

Since its debut in 2009 at New York’s Westside Theater, "Love, Loss and What I Wore" has never failed to garner praise from critics and delight audience members who saw themselves or someone they knew in each funny and poignant tale.

The show won the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience as well as the 2010 Broadway.com Audience Award for Favorite New Off-Broadway Play.  It has since then been staged in  Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Scandinavia, Los Angeles, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Mexico, Australia, and Paris.

The show is directed by Theater Down South’s Artistic Director Michael Williams and Cathy Azanza-Dy. Set design is by recent Gawad Buhay! (Philstage awards for the performing arts) awardee Denis Lagdameo and lighting design is by acclaimed and sought after lighting designer John Batalla.
