Bergl ("Desperate Housewives") and Morris ("The Electric Company"), who are part of the current cast of Love, Loss…, are set to help install Sheetrock in a series of units in a 1931 building in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. The building is being converted into an eight-condominium building, designated as affordable housing through Habitat-NYC.
The Love, Loss… team is joining the project, which is part of Habitat-NYC's initiative to renovate 100 homes in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Ocean Hill-Brownsville.
The current cast of Love, Loss… also features Julie Halston (The Divine Sister), Emme ("Fashion Emergency") and Susan Sullivan ("Castle").
Karen Carpenter directs Nora and Delia Ephron's production based on Ilene Beckerman's book of the same name that "uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to."
The design team includes Jo Winiarski (scenic design), Jessica Jahn (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Walter Trarbach (sound design) and Maria Verel (make-up design).
Carpenter also directed the Monday night readings of Love, Loss, and What I Wore that were presented as a benefit for Dress for Success. A portion of the proceeds from the current run benefits Dress for Success.
