Golden Globe Award nominee Nikki Blonsky, who starred as Tracy Turnblad in the film of the Broadway musical Hairspray, will join the January cast of Love, Loss, and What I Wore Off-Broadway.

Karen Carpenter directs the 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 this past winter and spring as a benefit for Dress for Success. A portion of the proceeds from the current run benefits Dress for Success.
