Update, Oct. 28, 4:01 p.m. - The event has postponed due to the pending hurricane and will be rescheduled for Nov. 5.
Celebrity Autobiography -- the only live comedy event where audiences hear excerpts from celebrity-written memoirs read verbatim (with a wink) -- will be performed at the Madison Theatre at Molloy College on Monday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m.
Led by actress Carol Kane, Ralph Macchio, Sherri Shepherd and Alan Zweibel, with creators Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, a first-rate comedic ensemble will perform a variety of jaw-dropping vignettes inspired and torn straight from the pages of the most unforgettable celebrity tell-alls.
The passages run the gamut from the "he-said, she-said" accounts of Burt and Loni, to the re-enactment of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson's courtship, to Justin Bieber's backstage confessions to the tale of the most famous Hollywood love triangle in history – Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher.
And what’s remarkable and unforgettably hilarious – it’s all in their own words. People walk away from the show asking the same question: “Did they actually write that?” The response: "Yes. We couldn't make this stuff up!"
One of the most critically acclaimed productions ever on the off-Broadway scene, Celebrity Autobiography ran on Bravo TV as a special and won the 2009 Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience, as well as the 2010 Bistro Award.
Kane and Zweibel will be joined on stage by Emmy Award-nominated writer-performer Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel. Celebrity Autobiography was originally created by Pack and Reyfel and produced off-Broadway by Angelo Fraboni, currently Artistic Director at the Madison Theatre.
Tickets for Celebrity Autobiography are $20 and can be purchased by phone (516-678-5000, ext. 7715) or online at madisontheatreny.org.
