After the very successful July 2011 Asian premiere in Manila of "Love, Loss, and What I Wore," CTE Productions brings back the acclaimed off-Broadway hit, still with some of the best female artists in the scene today. The show January 20, 21 and 22 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, 4th Floor, RCBC Plaza, Ayala Avenue corner Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City.
The January 2012 cast of "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" includes theater luminary and current Associate Artistic Director of Repertory Philippines Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo; veteran theater actress, writer and emerging director, Cathy Azaza-Dy; multi-talented actress, businesswoman and current treasurer of Repertory Philippines Liza Infante-Robinson; thespian and music sensation Bituin Escalante; and acclaimed classical vocalist and theater performer Jay Valencia-Glorioso.

The sensational Off-Broadway show "Love, Loss, and What I Wore," written by Nora Ephron ("When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle") and Delia Ephron ("The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," "Hanging Up"), vividly recounts a selection of comic and heartwarming stories from different women who remember key moments in their lives through the clothes they wore.
