The vagaries of womanhood take center stage tonight in the Buffalo United Artists Theatre, where a production of Nora and Delia Ephron's "Love, Loss and What I Wore" opens under the direction of Jessica K. Rasp.
The show, a collection of monologues based on a book by Illene Beckerman, recently closed its successful, four-year run in New York City. It's set up as a staged reading designed for a rotating cast, with each woman reading vignettes about such things as the scourge of keeping a purse, intergenerational relationships among women, and the mini-dramas of prom dress and bra shopping.
The BUA production, which runs through June 2, stars Kerrykate Abel, Kelli Bocock-Natale, Caitlin Coleman, Loraine O'Donnell and Joy Scime. Tickets are $15 to $25, with more information available at 886-9239 or www.buffalobua.org.
