The latest edition of "Celebrity Autobiography," the live show of "dramatic" readings from stars' memoirs, is certain to be one for the books when it arrives at LIU Post's Tilles Center in Brookville Saturday night with Long Islanders Susan Lucci and Ralph Macchio headlining.
"All My Children" veteran Lucci, who lives in Garden City, and "Cobra Kai" star and Huntington native Macchio aren't the only homegrown talents who'll be reading pearls of wisdom from books by the likes of Suzanne Somers and Vanna White. "Saturday Night Live" writer Alan Zweibel, who grew up in Woodmere and Wantagh, and Macchio's daughter, actor Julia Macchio, who was raised in Suffolk County, will also appear onstage.
Rounding out the cast will be actors Tate Donovan ("Damages"), Mario Cantone ("Sex and the City") and Caroline Aaron ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), and the creators of "Celebrity Autobiography" Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel.
“I’ve been a fan of 'Celebrity Autobiography' for years and could not be more excited to host this fantastic show with performers that are hilarious in their own right, and also have special ties to Long Island," said Tilles Center executive director Tom Dunn in a statement. "And I, for one, am very much looking forward to hearing why Justin Bieber got stuck in the trunk of a car.”
Showtime is at 7 p.m. at the Krasnoff Theater. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased at tillescenter.org.
