"We are thrilled to have assembled such a fantastic group of actresses who will vividly bring to life the wonderful stories Nora and Delia Ephron have created," said producer Daryl Roth in a statement.
The Ephrons' play, based on Ilene Beckerman's book of the same name, will officially open its 12-week run Oct. 1. Roth produces the work "about clothes and the memories they trigger." Karen Carpenter 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. Carpenter will again direct the Off-Broadway engagement; a portion of the proceeds from the upcoming run will also benefit Dress for Success.
The complete 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).
