The roster of stars set to take the stage during Celebrity Autobiography's Broadway bow continues to grow. Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick, last seen on the Great White Way in Sylvia, will take part in the first performance, set for November 26 at the Marquis Theatre.
The long-running comedy series features a cast of performers reading from the autobiographies and memoirs of the famous and infamous; it will play three performances total on Broadway this holiday season (instead of the previously announced four): November 26, December 10, and December 17.
Tony Danza recently joined the rotating cast for the December 10 installment. Other stars appearing include SNL veterans Alec Baldwin, Rachel Dratch, and Cecily Strong, as well as Lewis Black, Mario Cantone, Antoni Porowski, and Emmy-winning soap star Susan Lucci.
The Marquis is also hosting a holiday run of The Illusionists—the touring production that returns for its fourth Broadway engagement beginning November 23.
Created by Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, Celebrity Autobiography features an ever-changing selection of tell-alls and memoirs, performed verbatim by a rotating cast of comedians and actors. Over the years, Celebrity Autobiography has incorporated the words of Sarah Palin, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Mr. T, Star Jones, Kenny Loggins, Tommy Lee, Sylvester Stallone, 'N Sync, Zsa Zsa Gabor, David Cassidy, Neil Sedaka, Britney Spears, Madonna, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds.
Celebrity Autobiography has been a New York nightlife staple for over a decade and marks its Broadway premiere with the Marquis Theatre stint. The franchise has been produced around the U.S., including a Los Angeles engagement and a Bravo television special.
Performances are at 8 PM. Celebrity Autobiography is produced on Broadway by MagicSpace Entertainment, Angelo Fraboni, Carl Pasbjerg, Dayle Reyfel, and EP Productions.
