TORONTO LOVES
L O V E,  L O S S,  A N D   W H A T   I   W O R E

EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 30 WITH NEW CAST:

TREY ANTHONY, LEAH PINSENT, MARY LOU FALLIS, STACEY FARBER

Toronto, September 22, 2010  - Producers Michael Rubinoff and Daryl Roth proudly announce another extension through to October 30 with a brand new cast for their hit Toronto production of the award-winning Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Nora Ephorn and Delia Ephron at the Panasonic Theatre.

Award-wining writer and actor Trey Anthony ('da Kink in my Hair), Gemini-winning operatic comedienne Mary Lou Fallis (pictured on the left - Primadonna shows for theatre and CBC Radio, Bravo TV's "Bathroom Divas"), rising star Stacey Farber (CBC-TV's "18 to Life," "Degrassi" alum) and Gemini Award-winning Leah Pinsent (CBC-TV's "Made in Canada," "More Tears"), along with one other cast member tba, perform October 7-30. Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketking.com or 416-872-1212.

Written by sisters Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore is an intimate collection of stories covering some of life's most poignant moments and their corresponding wardrobe. This evening of vignettes, based on the best-selling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman as well as personal reminiscences from the Ephrons and their friends, features a rotating cast of five who share tales to which every woman - and their male friends and mates - can relate.

The current cast - Jeanne Beker, Barbara Budd, Luba Goy, Sheila McCarthy, Jane McLean (with Lisa Horner stepping in for Beker on selected evenings due to her previous commitments) - perform to October 2. (Jeanne Beker, Barbara Budd,  Sheila McCarthy, Luba Goy and Jane McLean appear in the photograph by Cylla von Tiedemann.)

"Awesome women, funny stories.... hilarious, touching, always enjoyable" - Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

"A show about women, and for women. Men, however, will get a kick out of being allowed, temporarily, to enter into the mysteries of womanhood. Definite belly-laughs" - Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail

"A closet full of laughs! Five fabulous and funny ladies deliver memories of fashions past from poodle skirts to stirrup pants. After seeing this show, you'll giggle every time you look in your closet." - Gloria Martin, 680 News

"What a treat it was to see five fabulously strong and uniquely colourful actresses perform. These women are a tour de force; at once hilarious and heart breaking. Great comic precision" - Jean Stilwell, Classical 96.3FM

About the show:

Love, Loss, and What I Wore opened Off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre on October 1, 2009 where it continues to play with rotating monthly casts. A Los Angeles company opened at the Geffen Playhouse on May 13, 2010 and continues its extension. The Toronto production opened on July 21, 2010, winning both popular and critical acclaim and has been extended for its second time through to October 30.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
