"Most people remember what famous people wore when they met; I remember what they ate." In her 60-year career, Renee Taylor has been nominated for an Academy Award, performed stand-up comedy with Barbra Streisand as her opening act, and starred in movies like Mel Brooks' The Producers and TV shows like The Nanny and How I Met Your Mother. Needless to say, this Hollywood legend has seen it all. She's also tried every diet in existence, no matter how insane or hilarious. Now she takes the stories in her best-selling book, My Life on a Diet: Confessions of a Hollywood Diet Junkie, and shares them on stage in a funny and nostalgic tell-all that's packed with juicy gossip and lots of laughs. Highlights of this staged reading include the dieting advice she received from Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford, as well as tales of many other famous co-stars with whom Taylor worked, accompanied by video and slides.

Reviews & Ratings
Dreamgirls is a show about a time in American musical history when what is called rhythm and blues blended with other styles of popular music creating a new American sound. Act One is set in the fabulous sixties-a time when we were still screaming at Elvis and listening to the Beatles, but were dancing to the new beat of countless girl and boy groups like The Supremes, The Marvelettes, The Temptations and The Shirelles. Dreamgirls is not just about the singing and the dancing and the performing. The play is also about the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry-the business part of show business that made possible this cultural phenomenon. Act Two shows the creation and the arrival of disco-though the word is never used in the script. The subject matter of this play deals with a musical contribution to America of such importance that only now-two decades later-are we beginning to understand.
