Although the show was written by women, for women and about women don't take that to mean "Love, Loss and What I Wore" is off limits to anyone with a Y chromosome. In fact Cobie Smulders and Rachael Harris, two of the cast's current members, believe that men can actually learn a thing or two if they tag along with their wives to the hit off-Broadway show.
Personally I learned that my closet behavior shares way too much DNA with a woman's. I'm not ashamed to admit that I often stand in front of my Carrie Bradshaw-esque closet (I wish) and think, "I literally don't have a thing to wear."
It turns out that identifying with a more than a few of the monologues was just one of the reason Cobie and Rachael joined the show. The other? The Nostradamus-like precognitive knowledge that on June 9 they would make me laugh to the point of tears. And who'd want to pass that up?
"Love, Loss and What I Wore" is playing at The Westside Theater -- Cobie & Rachael remain with the cast until June 27, when a new group of ladies (including Sharon Lawrence) take over!
