David Galligan directs the 12-week limited engagement.
In addition to Tomlin and Wagner, the producing team also includes Bruce Robert Harris, Jack W. Batman, Dennis Grimaldi, Jean McFaddin-Susan Falk, Daniel Wallace and D. Michael Dvorchak/Jim McLaughlin.
Tomlin said in a statement, "I have seldom spent time working with anyone who so engaged me. What a storyteller! Completely open and honest, witty, charming, outrageously funny and filled with humor about himself and about navigating this life we all share."
Wagner added, "Lily and I saw one of the early showcases of My Trip Down the Pink Carpet and knew at once that we were seeing a performance that we wanted to be a part of in any way possible. We felt it was a one-man revelation that everyone should see. Leslie takes us on a rollicking, life-affirming trip down the shocking pink carpet of his wonderfully crazy life. The carpet is wall to wall laughs about the human condition and the little carbon footprints Leslie makes within it. His struggles with sexual identity prejudice and self-doubt will resonate with anyone who has a heart and a funny bone."
The creative team includes Michael Hotopp (scenic consultant), Jesse Belsky (lighting design), Wallace Flores (sound design) and Andrea Wales (production stage manager).
Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 9 PM and Sunday at 6 PM.
Tickets, priced $55 and $79.50, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. The Midtown Theater is located at 163 West 46th Street.
