What's My Line? – Live On Stage, which was a hit in Los Angeles, is currently playing Monday nights in Manhattan at 8 PM through May 26. Panelists for the April 28 performance include Tony Award winner Jarrod Emick, Xanadu's Jackie Hoffman, "Wallstrip" host Julie Alexandria and music writer/producer Andy Zax.
The 75-minute stage version of "What's My Line" features live music and performances as well as a weekly mystery guest. In Los Angeles mystery guests have included Larry King, Drew Carey and Shirley Jones.
What's My Line?, according to press notes, follows the basic format of the TV game show: "Four celebrity panelists try to guess the occupation of a guest, asking only yes-or-no questions. The guests are all regular folks with unusual occupations — plus an appearance by a special celebrity mystery guest. This stage show, however, is not broadcast; the only audience is the folks who show up in the 199-seat theatre. It's a real game with real people with real occupations and genuine celebrities — the show is not scripted and runs approximately 75 minutes, with no intermission."
The Barrow Street Theatre is located in Manhattan at 27 Barrow Street at Seventh Avenue, south of Christopher Street. Tickets, priced $25, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. For more information visit www.whatsmyline.org.
