Alec Baldwin, Christie Brinkley and More Set for CELEBRITY AUTOBIOGRAPHY: THE NEXT CHAPTER, 8/24
The Drama Desk Award-winning Celebrity Autobiography will play East Hampton's Guild Hall with its new edition Celebrity Autobiography: The Next Chapter, Friday, August 24 at 7pm and 9:30pm. Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton.
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.
Celebrity Autobiography has recently toured nationally and internationally with acclaimed performances in Pittsburgh, New Orleans, San Francisco, Chicago, Arizona, Austin, Miami, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Boston, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Sydney Opera House, as well as an ongoing production at Los Angeles's Broad Stage. The show also plays at London's Leicester Square Theatre to critical and popular acclaim.
The original Celebrity Autobiography has played to sell-out audiences and rave reviews in New York since its opening in September 2008. The show has been featured by numerous media outlets, including ABC's "The View" and "Nightline," NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly," CBS's "Sunday Morning," NPR's "Morning Edition," CNN'S "American Morning," New York 1, WNBC'S "News for New York" at 11pm, and Bravo's "A-List Awards."
