News   Testa, Jackson and Kind Join Celebrity Autobiography Benefit
 
Mary Testa, Cheyenne Jackson and Richard Kind are the latest additions to the line-up of actors who will take part in Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words Sept. 10 at the Zipper Factory.

As previously announced, the evening will benefit the Actors' Fund of America and will also feature the talents of Emmy winner Kristen Johnston, Tony Roberts, Jackie Hoffman, Seth Rudetsky, Jack Plotnick, Dayle Reyfel and Eugene Pack. Show time is 7:30 PM. Celebrity Autobiography, which was created by Pack, features actors who "'interpret' the actual words and stories written by the famous and the infamous."

In a statement creator Pack said, "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."

The Zipper Factory is located in Manhattan at 336 West 37th Street. Tickets, priced $35, $65 and $100 (includes post-show cocktail reception), are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting www.thezipperfactory.com.
