It had it's funny moments, but it just seems like she was out of steam. I like Joan Rivers. I saw her in Boston with Melissa and thought they were hysterical. It was still worth the trip.

Never in a million years did I think Joan Rivers would make ME blush. ME?!?!?! She was bawdy and entertaining -- I loved it!

A big surprise for someone who is not a huge fan of Joan Rivers. Lots of laughs and genuine heart revealing memories from a less raunchy but high spirited star, surrounded by several really good supporting players. A fun evening!

More Information


As playwright and star, Joan Rivers brings the world premiere of her four-character autobiographical play, Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress, to the Geffen Playhouse. Set immediately before Hollywood’s biggest award preshow, Rivers uses her interactions with the other characters as well as her dressing room (B, not A), her cheese plate (puny, not plentiful) and her producer (the bigwig’s brother-in-law, not the bigwig), as impetus for an introspective look at aging, going through life’s ups and downs and being a woman in Hollywood. Don’t miss the incredible opportunity to see this groundbreaking Emmy Award-winning talk show host, Tony Award-nominated actress and legendary comic icon up close and personal.

Starring Joan Rivers, with Tara Joyce, Emily Kosloski and Adam Kulbersh

Directed by Bart DeLorenzo
