We gave it a B+

What The Vagina Monologues did for, well, vaginas, this stripped-down production aims to do for clothes. And that’s not as superficial a mission as it sounds. In fact, as performed by a rotating cast of five actresses, the vignettes — culled from Ilene Beckerman’s best-seller, as well as interviews by playwrights Nora and Delia Ephron — prove that clothes do make the woman. Love, Loss, and What I Wore tackles the travails of bra fittings, a late mother’s beloved robe, and the hunt for a wedding dress — the perfect counterweight to a stressful day of jeans shopping. B+
