Nancy Travis, Conchata Ferrell to join 'Love, Loss and What I Wore' at Geffen Playhouse
The Geffen Playhouse's production of "Love, Loss and What I Wore" will have a casting change June 10 and the theater has just confirmed the new set of actresses for the production that was written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron.
Justina Machado and Nancy Travis will join the previously announced Conchata Ferrell, Rhea Perlman and Lucy DeVito. The new cast members will have two preview performances June 9 and will officially open June 10. They are set to run through July 3 at the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theatre.
Both Perlman and DeVito performed in the New York version of "Love, Loss and What I Wore," which also is playing off Broadway.
Machado was previously seen at the Geffen in a production of Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)" in 2007. Travis, whose most famous movie role was in "Three Men and Baby," was in the Geffen's production of Rebecca Gilman's "Boy Meets Girl" in 2003.
Ferrell is starring on the CBS comedy series "Two and a Half Men." She, Machado and Travis are making their debuts in "Love, Loss."
The Geffen's production of the play, based on the Ilene Beckerman book, began with a cast of Rita Wilson, Natasha Lyonne, Carol Kane, Caroline Aaron and Tracee Ellis Ross.
