'Celebrity Autobiography' Headed to Broadway With Alec Baldwin and More Stars
The comedy series features performers reading from the autobiographies and memoirs of notable figures in Hollywood.
Celebrity Autobiography is heading to Broadway. The show, which features well-known performers reading from the autobiographies and memoirs of notable figures in Hollywood, will play three Monday night performances on Nov. 26, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 at New York's Marquis Theater.
The rotating cast includes Saturday Night Live veterans Alec Baldwin, Rachel Dratch and Cecily Strong. Matthew Broderick, Lewis Black, Mario Cantone, Michael Urie, Susan Lucci, Tony Danza, Eugene Pack, Dayle Reyfel and Queer Eye stars Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness are also part of the ensemble, which will perform verbatim excerpts from an ever-changing selection of tell-alls.
Throughout the years in its long-running off-Broadway engagement, Celebrity Autobiography has borrowed words from the books of Sarah Palin, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas brothers, Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Mr. T, Star Jones, Kenny Loggins, Tommy Lee, Sylvester Stallone, *NSYNC, Zsa Zsa Gabor, David Cassidy, Neil Sedaka, Britney Spears, Madonna, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.
Celebrity Autobiography is Baldwin's first official gig since the actor made headlines for an arrest last week. The actor was arrested in New York on Friday after allegedly punching a man over a parking spot and will be charged with assault. (Baldwin later tweeted that the allegation was "false.")
Then on Tuesday, ABC announced that the network has pulled the remaining pretaped episodes of The Alec Baldwin Show from its home on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, effective Nov. 18. Unaired new episodes of the series, hosted by Baldwin, will resume airing in its new time slot on Saturdays, starting Dec. 8 at 10 p.m. In the interim, ABC will air repeats of Shark Tank in The Alec Baldwin Show's Sunday at 10 p.m. slot starting Nov. 18.
Celebrity Autobiography is produced on Broadway by MagicSpace Entertainment, Angelo Fraboni, Carl Pasbjerg, Dayle Reyfel and EP Productions. The lineup for the four Monday holiday performances, which begin at 8 p.m., are below.
