Yeardley Smith, known for playing Lisa Simpson on the long-running Fox hit "The Simpsons," will bring a unique voice to the Off-Broadway run of Love, Loss, and What I Wore.



Smith, who also performed her solo show More Off-Broadway in 2004, will join Marylouise Burke (Kimberly Akimbo, Into the Woods) and Ann Harada (Avenue Q, 9 to 5) in the Aug. 10-Sept. 4 cast.

The Sept. 7-Oct. 2 cast will welcome back Anne Meara ("Sex and the City") and Ashley Austin Morris ("The Electric Company"); while La La Anthony ("TRL") will join the Oct. 5-30 cast; and Maddie Corman (Next Fall) will step into the Nov. 2-Dec. 11 company.

Additional names will be announced shortly.

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.
