February 15, 2016, Midland, Mich. – The reader’s theatre production Love, Loss and What I Wore is coming to Creative 360’s Gallery Stage Saturday, February 20 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 989-837-1885 or online at www.becreative360.org.
Love, Loss and What I Wore is an intimate collection of true-life stories by Nora and Delia Ephron based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman and the recollections of the Ephron friends. The show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell of the best, worst, saddest, happiest, funniest and most embarrassing moments of their lives. Topics include things like high heels, bras and bathrobes, marriage, divorce, complicated relationships with men and moms, sex, illness, and death.
Director Carol Rumba noted that the success of past reader’s theatre productions featuring women’s stories shows that the area is hungry for such performances. “I thought it would be fun to bring this particular play, which has been very popular internationally, to the Great Lakes Bay Region, especially when we are gifted with the local talent to support it,” she explained.
The all-female cast includes Debbie Lake, Susie Polito, Carol Rumba, Cathie Stewart, and Trena Winans.
This show contains adult language and themes and is not suitable for children. A cash bar will be available.
