The Drama Desk Award-winning Celebrity Autobiography returned with its new edition, Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter, at the Triad Theater for two shows on February 13, 14 and 15. BroadwayWorld was on hand to snap the comedic crew, which included special guests Bobby Cannavale, America Ferrera, Gina Gershon and more.

Last night's performance benefits SLAM (Sobriety, Learning and Motivation), a group dedicated to the creation of New York’s first recovery based high school.

Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter will also perform a special Valentine’s Day edition at the 92nd Street Y on Wednesday, February 14 at 8:15pm.

The February casts included Mario Cantone, Carol Kane, Ralph Macchio, Eugene Pack, Dayle Reyfel, Sherri Shepherd, and Alan Zweibel, Dick Cavett, Judy Gold, Jackie Hoffman, Bobby Cannavale, Andy Cohen, Rachel Dratch, America Ferrara, Santino Fontana, John Benjamin Hickey, Kristen Johnston, and Natasha Lyonne.

Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter features selections from books by Justin Bieber, "The Situation," Madonna, Tiger Woods, Susan Lucci, David Hasselhoff, Geraldo Rivera, Melissa Gilbert, Patti LuPone, Kenny Loggins, Destiny's Child, The Jonas Brothers, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Diana Ross, David Cassidy,Britney Spears, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Eminem, and Vanna White.

Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter also includes special ‘celebrity mash-ups’—Cher, Barbra Streisand, Neil Sedaka, Dolly Parton, and Celine Dion all expressing their passion for food; Sylvester Stallone and Tommy Lee on working out and working ‘it’ out; LL Cool J, Miley Cyrus, and Ricky Martin addressing who they "really are;” Tallulah Bankhead, Kathleen Turner, and Ethel Merman sharing the secrets of ‘diva-dom;” and Lauren Bacall and Carol Channing recreating the suspense of Tony night.

No version of Celebrity Autobiography would be complete without some returning classics, including the infamous memoirs of Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds, which are edited together to create a Rashomon-esque playlet, and the hilarious Burt Reynolds-Loni Anderson he said/she said saga.

Celebrity Autobiography and Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter, created by Eugene Pack and developed by Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, feature a line-up of rotating performers who read—in both solo and ensemble pieces— the actual words and stories written by the famous and the infamous in their autobiographies.
