At the Panasonic Theatre in Toronto, they will join the previously announced Jeanne Beker (CTV's "Fashion Television"), Barbara Budd (a Stratford actor prior to her long stint as co-host of CBC Radio's "As It Happens") and Gemini, Genie and Dora Award-winning actor Sheila McCarthy (CBC-TV's "Little Mosque on the Prairie"). Due to previous engagements, Lisa Horner will take over for Jeanne Beker on select performances. Horner makes a return to the Panasonic, where she starred in the hit show My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding for Mirvish Productions.
The intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron concerns milestones in women's lives, and what they were wearing for those times. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends.
Performances will play Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 PM. The official opening is Sept. 11. There are two added performances: Sunday, Sept. 12 at 2 PM and 7 PM.
The current cast — Lauren Collins ("Degrassi: The Next Generation"), five-time Gemini Award winner Wendy Crewson ("Away From Her," "24"), Dora Award winner Cynthia Dale (Stratford Festival leading lady for ten seasons, "Street Legal"), Gemini Award winner Linda Kash ("Robson Arms") and Genie Award winner Margot Kidder ("Superman" series) continue to perform until Sept. 4.
