Nora Ephron said “this show is like The Vagina Monologues without the vaginas.” Variety described it as “catnip!”
Carole MacCartee directs this lighthearted and witty peek into five women’s lives, using their wardrobes as a time capsule of events. Winner of the 2010 Broadway.com Audience Award for Favorite New Off-Broadway Play, it was described by Charles Isherwood for the New York Times’ as “a scrapbook of stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear.”
Nora Ephron’s wit defined an era. She was educated at Wellesley College and became an acclaimed essayist, novelist and and Oscar-nominated screenwriter. She featured strong female characters and a clear view of modern romance.
Nora was one cog in a literary family. Her parents were Henry and Phoebe Ephron, stage and screen writers. She was married three times to writers Dan Greenburg, Carl Bernstein and, at the time of her passing to Nicholas Pileggi.
Delia upholds the family writing banner as a best-selling author (The Lion is In), screenwriter (You’ve Got Mail) and playwright. Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, O the Oprah Magazine, Vogue and the Huffington Post. She collaborated with her sister on this play which is the second-longest running show in the Off Broadway Westside Theatre history.
Matters of the heart and matters of the closet combine in this comic and poignant collection of stories that Theatre Mania called “insightful, entertaining touching an often hilarious.”
