A decade-long journey culminates in a grand finale of the season! Boston's Hub Theatre Company is set to cap off its jubilant 10th-anniversary season by bringing back the cherished Nora and Delia Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with the talented Paula Plum at the helm. This captivating show will grace the stage at Club Cafe, located at 209 Columbus Ave in the historic Back Bay of Boston. The curtain rises on Saturday, July 22, and the final bow will be taken on Saturday, August 5, 2023. The play will enchant audiences on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2:00 pm, and will also feature a matinee on August 5 at 2:00 pm. Tickets follow a "Pay-What-You-Can" approach.

From the renowned duo who gifted the world with cinematic gems like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, comes a play that is both riotously funny and touchingly sentimental. Love, Loss and What I Wore delves into the timeless dilemma - "A closet bursting with clothes, yet nothing to wear." Through poetic tributes to maiden bras, bulging handbags, fearsome fitting rooms, and ensembles that made our mothers shake their heads, the play serves as a homage to the garments that escorted us through life's roller coaster of experiences. Join us for a nostalgic journey through the annals of your wardrobe.
A quintet of Boston's fashion-forward actresses - Nettie Chickering, Barbara Douglas, Lauren Elias, Evelyn Holley, and June Kfoury - will breathe life into these witty anecdotes and profound reflections. The show is brought to life under the stewardship of Paula Plum, an illustrious five-time Elliot Norton Award recipient, and the equally accomplished Elliot Norton Award winner and Boston's own style connoisseur, Kiki Samko, who joins as assistant director.
Nora Ephron, a Wellesley College alumna, was a revered essayist, novelist (author of Heartburn, I Hate My Neck) and screenwriter, whose work includes the Oscar-nominated When Harry Met Sally. Additionally, she was a skillful filmmaker, directing beloved films like Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. Delia Ephron, her sister, is an accomplished author, screenwriter, and playwright, with an impressive portfolio that includes You've Got Mail, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Hanging Up, and Michael. She has also contributed to The New York Times, O the Oprah Magazine, Vogue, and The Huffington Post.
