The central point of Nora and Delia Ephron's well-judged, sweetly enjoyable monologue-athon (inspired by Ilene Beckerman's illustrated memoir) is not that clothes make the woman; it's that clothes make the woman talk. If wardrobe reveals our existential confusion, the Ephron sisters know exactly who we are. The rotating starry ensemble includes Tyne Daly, Mary Birdsong, Lisa Joyce, Jane Lynch and Mary Louise Wilson (Oct 21--Nov 15); Kristin Chenoweth, Lucy DeVito, Capathia Jenkins, Rhea Perlman and Rita Wilson (Nov 17--Dec 13); and Lucy Devito, Katie Finneran and Capathia Jenkins (Dec 14--Jan 3).—Helen Shaw
