The five actresses are scheduled to stay with the production through April 25. Beginning April 28 (through May 23), the cast will feature Anna Chlumsky (My Girl), Julie Halston (Gypsy), Brooke Shields ("Lipstick Jungle") and Emmy winner Doris Roberts. Karen Carpenter directs the Ephron play, which is based on Ilene Beckerman's book of the same name. Performances began Sept. 21, 2009.
The play, according to press notes, "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 will benefit Dress for Success.
