Love, Loss and What I Wore Toronto - ReviewThursday, July 22, 2010
Last night, I was fortunate to attend the opening night of the Toronto premiere of Love, Loss and What I Wore. It features a fabulous female cast which includes Louise Pitre, Mary Walsh, Andrea Martin, Sharron Matthews and Paula Brancati. To say that their performances were phenomenal would be an understatement. And my judgment was not clouded by the glass of bubbly I downed before taking my seat. These ladies truly captured the essence of each of their characters by evoking feelings of nostalgia and making us laugh to the point of nearly peeing in our pant(ie)s. My friend and I went out for coffee down the street from the Panasonic Theatre afterwards to discuss our favourite parts including the hilarious scene which spoke of bra fittings and mono-boobs, and who can forget the "I hate purses!" scene? Seriously, if you're in or around Toronto these next few months, you best take a drive down Yonge Street and take in a delightful show on lust, life and what they wore.
Also, if you like Sharron Matthews, love to read and enjoy a good laugh, or any combination of the three, head on over to Sharron's Blog and Vlog. She has posted some behind-the-scenes photos from last night's after party. Check out Paula's hot red dress and Mary's bright pink blazer! I'll take one of each. In black.
I also want to send a big shout out to Hubert Hsu, the show's social media man, for arranging to provide me and my guest with tickets for the show.
