Emmy Award-winning actress and writer Rene Taylor known to millions as Fran Fines food obsessed mother, Sylvia, on The Nanny will bring her comedy smash MY LIFE ON A DIET to George Street Playhouse beginning November 19th. Called fascinating, lighthearted and spicy by The New York Times, MY LIFE ON A DIET, an autobiographical comedy written by Ms. Taylor and her late husband Joseph Bologna, had an enormously successful run last season Off-Broadway under the direction of Mr. Bologna. In MY LIFE ON A DIET, Rene Taylor looks back on a life full of memorable roles in Hollywood and on Broadway, and just as many fad diets. A self-described "diet junkie" who used to think that if she ate like star, she'd just might look and live like one, Rene dishes out both juicy anecdotes about and weight loss tips from Hollywood legends such as Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand. She also shares hilarious and poignant stories about Joseph Bologna, her partner in work and life for 52 years. In telling about her high and lows on and off the scale this comedy legend proves the ability to laugh gets you through it all.
