The 7:30 PM performance also features Kristen Wiig, Dayle Reyfel, Eugene Pack, Jack Plotnick, Tony Roberts and Cheyenne Jackson, all reading selections from the autobiographies of the famous and infamous. Eugene Pack, who created the series, previously commented, "I would listen to a lot of books-on-tape, particularly autobiographies, and was astounded at what people would write about. When I would get a hold of one of these books and read it out loud to friends, they'd insist I was making it up. But people actually wrote these words! So I decided to put the material up in front of an audience, knowing that it would be extremely entertaining."

Upcoming performances of Celebrity Autobiography at the Triad will include Rachel Dratch, Jackie Hoffman, Carson Kressley, Andrea Martin, Seth Rudetsky and Mary Testa.

The cast and what autobiographies will be presented rotate on a weekly basis. Elizabeth Taylor, Mr T, Tommy Lee and Sylvester Stallone's autobiographies are slated to be featured. The words of Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Star Jones, Kenny Loggins, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds have also been performed in previous Celebrity Autobiography evenings.

The six-week New York engagement of Celebrity Autobiography will play Monday evenings through March 3. Reservations are available by calling (212) 362-2590. The Triad is located in Manhattan at 158 West 72nd Street.
