‘What I Wore’ aids women in program

Advocate staff report

Nora and Delia Ephron’s “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often touching stories.

During the show’s run, and to celebrate the grand opening of its newly renovated performance space, Le Petit Theatre will join the New Orleans chapter of Dress for Success to collect gently worn suits and women’s professional attire to help women in the program as they enter or return to the working world.

The public is asked to drop off donations before each night’s performance at Le Petit Theatre, 616 St. Peter St., in the French Quarter. Each person donating gently worn suits and women’s attire or purchasing a raffle ticket before each performance of “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” will be eligible to win prizes drawn each evening before the show’s performance.
