Love, Loss and What I Wore Closing October 30

From a media release - all good things must come to an end sometime...

HIT SHOW
LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE
ENDS RUN OCTOBER 30

Toronto, October  21, 2010 - Producers Michael Rubinoff and Daryl Roth today announced that their hit Toronto production of the award-winning Love, Loss, and What I Wore will end its hugely successful run on October 30 at the Panasonic Theatre.

The Toronto production began performances on July 16, 2010, winning both popular and critical acclaim and was extended twice.

"We've had a fantastic run of more than 3 months," said Rubinoff in announcing the closing date. "With 105 performances by the time we close, the Toronto run of Love, Loss, and What I Wore will be one of the longest running non-musicals in this city in the last decade," he continued. "I am gratified that it struck a chord with audiences and we look forward to sharing the show with new audiences across the country as we make plans to present it in other Canadian cities in the future."

An intimate collection of stories that cover some of life's most poignant moments and their corresponding wardrobe by sisters Nora Ephorn and Delia Ephron, it features a cast of five that changes every four weeks and is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman as well as personal reminiscences from the Ephrons and their friends.

By the time it takes its final bow on October 30, it will have featured four different star-studded casts with each cast bringing their own unique qualities to the piece.

Currently on stage through to October 30 are award-wining writer and actor Trey Anthony ('da Kink in my Hair), Gemini-winning operatic comedienne Mary Lou Fallis (Primadonna shows), rising star Stacey Farber (CBC-TV's "18 to Life," "Degrassi" alum), Dora, Genie and Gemini winner Patricia Hamilton (Anne of Green Gables films and "Road to Avonlea" tv series) and Gemini Award-winning Leah Pinsent (CBC-TV's "Made in Canada," "More Tears"). (Images include, from the top, Trey Anthony, Leah Pinsent & Stacey Farber.)

The first cast ran from July 16 to August 7:  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,), Toronto cabaret diva Sharron Matthews (Sharron's Party), Tony nominee / Dora Award winner Louise Pitre (Mamma Mia!, Les Misérables, Annie Get Your Gun, The Toxic Avenger), and eighteen-time Gemini winner Mary Walsh ("This Hour Has 22 Minutes", "CODCO").

The second cast ran August 10 - September 4: Gemini nominee Lauren Collins ("Degrassi: The Next Generation"), 5-time Gemini Award winner Wendy Crewson (Away From Her, "24"), Dora Award winner Cynthia Dale (Stratford Festival leading lady for 10 seasons, "Street Legal"), Gemini Award winner Linda Kash ("Robson Arms") and Genie Award winner Margot Kidder (Superman series)

The third cast ran September 10 to October 2: fashionista Jeanne Beker (CTV "FashionTelevision"), Barbara Budd (former long-time co-host of CBC Radio's "As It Happens"), beloved comedian Luba Goy (CBC's acclaimed "Royal Canadian Air Farce), Gemini, Genie and Dora-winning Sheila McCarthy (CBC-TV's "Little Mosque on the Prairie") and rising young star  Jane McLean (The Time Traveler's Wife). (Lisa Horner, star of My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, stepped in for Beker on selected evenings due to previous commitments).
