‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore’ to premiere at Theatre Tallahassee

Theatre Tallahassee will present a production of “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” on Friday. 
The production, which is based on the novel by Ilene Beckerman, was written by Nora and Delia Ephron and will feature six women performing several roles. 
Melissa Findley, a director of the production and marketing manager for Theatre Tallahassee, said this is a community-involved production.
“Whether you act, sing, paint, build, direct, manage or simply want to volunteer your time, there is a place for everyone,” Findley said. 
Findley added that she expects a large turnout. 
“Tickets are doing well and following on the heels of our sell-out performance of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” earlier this season,” Findley said. “We’re expecting this show to quite possibly sell out as well.”
The novel is centered on clothing becoming a way to explore memory and ultimately what it means to be a woman. 
Michelle Nickens, one of the cast members in the play, expressed her excitement about the production. 
“I see myself, my mother, my girlfriends and some of my family members in these pieces,” Nickens said.
Findley said women will ultimately recognize themselves in the stories told, and men will gain a better understanding of women. The performance will include a series of monologues and vignettes, short impressionistic scenes that the actresses will perform.
