Created by Emmy Award nominee Eugene Pack and developed by Pack alongside Dayle Reyfel, Celebrity Autobiography was first staged in Los Angeles in 1998 and went on to gain grain popularity thanks to a 2005 television special on Bravo. Beginning in 2008, Celebrity Autobiography has been regularly mounted off-Broadway at the Triad, featuring a stellar line-up of comedic actors performing from the actual memoirs of a wide variety of stars, ranging from Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Fisher to Richard Burton. It has since been performed in London's West End, in Edinburgh, and at Australia’s Sydney Opera House.
Celebrity Autobiography on Broadway is produced by MagicSpace Entertainment, Angelo Fraboni, Carl Pasbjerg, Dayle Reyfel and EP Productions.
