Redlands Theatre Festival presents Love, Loss and What I Wore by Nora and Delia Nora Ephron, directed By: Shannon Galuszka.
Aug 5, 10, 16, & 21

More information can be found at rtfseason.com
(Tickets for ITL judges are available at the box office. Walk-ups only.)

Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore has become an international hit. With its compulsively entertaining subject matter, this intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron celebrated an accomplished two-and-a-half year run in New York’s Westside Theatre. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman as well as the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. The show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences domestically and overseas.
