Celebrity Autobiography is a night of non-stop laughter as audiences experience a variety of jaw-dropping vignettes torn straight from the pages of the most unforgettable celebrity tell-alls: from the “he said-she said” accounts of Burt and Loni . . . the Britney Spears diary . . . mr. T’s acting tips . . . the “poetry” of Suzanne Somers . . . Justin Bieber’s backstage confessions . . . the re-enactment of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s courtship . . . to the most famous Hollywood love triangle in history — Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Fisher.
And what’s most hilarious and astonishing — it’s all in their own words! Truth IS funnier than fiction — we couldn’t make this stuff up!
Created and developed by Emmy Award-nominated writer-performer Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, “Celebrity Autobiography” features a first rate comedic ensemble performing from the actual memoirs of a wide range of celebrities. other major characters featured in Celebrity Autobiography include: Sylvester Stallone, David Hasselhoff, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Star Jones, Neil Sedaka, Kenny Loggins, Madonna, and the Jonas Brothers.
Actual readings performed will be announced from the stage.
Running for three sold out years in New York, Celebrity Autobiography recently won the 2009 Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience and the 2010 Bistro Awards. the show has been one of the most critically acclaimed productions ever in the Off-Broadway scene and one of the most “buzzed about shows” of recent years.
