"Being able to share the intimate collection of stories in 'Love, Loss, and What I Wore' with audiences all over the world, and see it find its place in the cultural landscape, has been incredibly fulfilling," Roth said in a statement. "I am very proud of how many women this production has touched -- both on stage and off. We have had 32 rotating casts, and 120 actresses have participated during our New York run. The emotional resonance and personal connection people have to this show has been overwhelming."
