Directed by Karen Carpenter, the six Monday-night readings, which began Feb. 2, feature a rotating cast of five women. The Feb. 16 reading boasts the talents of America Ferrera, Heather Burns, Joyce Van Patten, Kathy Najimy and Kristen Schall. Show time is 8 PM. Based on Ilene Beckerman's book of the same name, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, according to press notes, "is about clothes and the memories they trigger." Daryl Roth is presenting the readings.
Proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that "provides interview clothing and job support for low-income women getting back into the workforce." Audience members are also invited to donate their gently used accessories and purses, which will be collected in the lobby.
Tickets, priced $50, are available by visiting www.LoveLossthebenefit.com. The DR2 Theatre is located at 103 East 15th Street, east of Union Square, in Manhattan.
