CELEBRITY AUTOBIOGRAPHY, which originated in Los Angeles to great acclaim and was later adapted for a Bravo-TV special, features actors reading selections from the autobiographies of the famous and infamous. The production won a 2009 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience.
Among the actors currently scheduled to perform in CELEBRITY AUTOBIOGRAPHY: GAY PRIDE EDITION are Mario Cantone, Rachel Dratch, Cheyenne Jackson, Kristen Johnston, John Cameron Mitchell, Eugene Pack, Dayle Reyfel, Bruce Vilanch, and B.D. Wong. (Lineup subject to change.)
Eugene Pack, who created the series, says, "I would listen to a lot of books-on-tape, particularly autobiographies, and was astounded at what people would write about. When I would get a hold of one of these books and read it out loud to friends, they'd insist I was making it up. But people actually wrote these words! So I decided to put the material up in front of an audience, knowing that it would be extremely entertaining."
The words of gay icons including Elizabeth Taylor, Britney Spears, Madonna, Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Star Jones,'N Sync, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Loni Anderson, Diana Ross, Kathie Lee Gifford, Miley Cyrus and Debbie Reynolds have all been performed in previous CELEBRITY AUTOBIOGRAPHY evenings.
