Rob Lowe And Johnny Mathis Announced At Playhouse Square

Inspired by the success of his two NY Times best-selling memoirs, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and Love Life, Rob has created an all-new, peek behind the curtain at Hollywood, fame, fatherhood, marriage, and a life lived at the forefront of culture for four decades. Rob's one-man show, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: LIVE! embarks on a 10-city tour that includes his first time at Playhouse Square's Connor Palace. Thurs., May 30 at 7:30 pm. (Tickets: $85, $69.50, $50, $40, with VIP Meet & Greet tickets at $250.)n a

From the Brat Pack to The West Wing to Parks and Rec and beyond, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: LIVE! is packed with witty fun and one-of-a-kind insights spanning an iconic career. Broadway World raves "The humor is first class, with the jokes and funny anecdotes keeping the audiences in stitches for most of the night. (Rob is).as personable and charismatic of a presence onstage as he is onscreen." In addition to Rob's storytelling, the show will include a Q&A plus many insider film clips and photos. "This isn't a regurgitation of the books, because that wouldn't be very much fun," Lowe says. "This is very much its own beast, but it has some of the same feel of the books. I love meeting people, being out in front of them, hearing their comments. It's really fun,"

Lowe recently wrapped the third season of the CBS medical drama Code Black. He created and produced The Lowe Files, an acclaimed non-scripted adventure series for A&E in which he and his two sons searched out unsolved mysteries. Lowe is currently directing and starring in the remake of the four-time academy award nominated film, The Bad Seed. Currently Rob can be seen hosting his weekly FOX-TV mental game show Mental Samurai. His Hollywood legacy was cemented in 2015 with the unveiling of his Walk of Fame star.
