Tickets on Sale NOW through SEPTEMBER 4

Toronto, July 6, 2010
- Producers Michael Rubinoff and Daryl Roth announced today that Margot Kidder, Sharron Matthews and Mary Walsh are the latest Canadian stars to join the cast for the Canadian premiere of the award-winning New York smash hit Love, Loss, and What I Wore, an intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron that won the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Best Unique Theatrical Experience. This exciting stage event runs July
16-September 4 at Toronto's Panasonic Theatre (651 Yonge St.) and features a cast of five that rotates in four-week cycles. Tickets are on sale now.

Eighteen-time Gemini winner Mary Walsh ("This Hour Has 22 Minutes", "CODCO") and Toronto cabaret diva Sharron Matthews (Sharron's Party) will be part of the premiere cast beginning Friday, July 16 and performing through Saturday August 7. They join previously announced Gemini and Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee Paula Brancati ("Degrassi: The Next Generation," "Being Erica"), Emmy and Tony Award-winning comedy legend Andrea Martin ("SCTV," My Big Fat Greek Wedding, My Favorite Year, Fiddler on the Roof), and Tony nominee / 4-time Dora Award winner Louise Pitre (Mamma Mia!, Les Misérables, Annie Get Your Gun, The Toxic Avenger) for the first cycle. (These opening cast members are pictured in the order of mention.)

Genie Award winner Margot Kidder (Superman, "Brothers and Sisters") joins the August cycle along with previously announced Gemini nominee Lauren Collins ("Degrassi: The Next Generation"), five-time Gemini Award winner Wendy Crewson (Away From Her, "24," "ReGenesis"), and Dora Award winner / Gemini nominee Cynthia Dale (Stratford Festival leading lady for 10 seasons, "Street Legal") that runs August 10-September 4.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a collection of stories based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons' friends. Like the popular book, it uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore opened Off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre on October 1, 2009 to rave reviews and continues to play to sold-out houses. New York casts have included Rosie O'Donnell, Kristin Chenoweth, Jane Lynch, Samantha Bee, Tyne Daly, Rhea Perlman, Carol Kane, Brooke Shields, Melissa Joan Hart, Fran Drescher, Caroline Rhea and others. A Los Angeles company opened at the Geffen Playhouse on May 13, 2010; also earning raves, and an extension.
Additional casting for the August cycle will be announced shortly. A portion of the production's proceeds will benefit the Toronto chapter of Dress for Success.
