Love, Loss and What I Wore
April 19, 2019 @ 8:00pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 4, 2019
Verge is entertaining its way right through spring with one or two spectacularly fantastic performances for stage-lovers of all ages! Here’s a look at what’s happening at “The Little Black Box on the Edge (of Bozeman).”
First up, Verge presents Nora and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss and What I Wore based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman. The local staging is directed by Carla Hill and presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. of New York.
The memorable play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covers all the important subjects – mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Bring your girlfriends, sisters, mothers, aunts… all the important women in your life and delight in their reflections of what it means to be a woman.
“Funny, compelling… Brought down the house… but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women’s search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer.” – The New York Times
“A bittersweet meditation on the joys and tribulations of women’s lives, reflected through the prism of their clothes.” – Variety
Performances of Love, Loss and What I Wore will be held Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm, April 19th to May 4th. Tickets are $19 in advance and at the door. Ages 17+.
The Monday night Improv on the Verge shows are sure to bring about the belly laughs! With a mixture of short-form games (like you see on the popular tv show Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and long-form stories, everything you see on stage is created on the spot using audience suggestions. With crowd favorites, the Bozeman Improverts AND some new faces, you won’t want to miss the best way to start your week. Come get cheap thrills for your laugh hole with advanced tickets for only $9, also available at the door at additional cost. Upcoming shows are set for April 22nd and May 6th. All performances start at 7pm. Ages 17+.
