"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.

THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE AND IN A VERY INTIMATE THEATER. WE COULD EVEN HAVE POP CORN, CANDY AND DRINKS IN THE THEATER DURING THE PERFORMANCE WHICH IS LIKE GOING TO A MOVIE THEATER BUT WITH AN SUPERB LIVE PERFORMANCE
Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.
Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat stars Richard Bermudez as Joseph and Angeline Carr as The Narrator, along with a very talented cast including many other Grove favorites.
