No version of Celebrity Autobiography would be complete without some returning classics, including the infamous memoirs of Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds, which are edited together to create a Rashomon-esque playlet, and the hilarious Burt Reynolds-Loni Anderson he said/she said saga.
Celebrity Autobiography created by Eugene Pack and developed by Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, feature a line-up of rotating performers who read-in both solo and ensemble pieces- the actual words and stories written by the famous and the infamous in their autobiographies.
