Between the heights of global fame and the deep trenches of total obscurity, there is a land of half-familiar faces, authentic talents and outrageous stories. Now Don Reed, the celebrated actor, playwright and warm-up comic for The Tonight Show, reveals all about this mysterious country in his all-new solo show, Semi-Famous: Hollywood Hell Tales from the Middle. From having a panic attack auditioning for Spike Lee to almost being shot by the Secret Service, Reed's stories are as outrageous as they are true. Get a glimpse of Hollywood -- that heartless, heartbreaking and (very occasionally) heartwarming city -- during this tour de force from Reed, a two-time NAACP Theatre Award nominee (Best Actor and Best Playwright).

Don Reed just may be a performing genius - he can dance, act, sing, do impressions, make crazy faces and write. Sadly, he cannot edit. Hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating. The show is too long. When intermission came at the hour mark, I'd had enough, an enjoyable enough, but still enough. The second act was 45 minutes. I'd much rather leave a show wishing it had been longer rather than resenting its length.
