‘Celebrity Autobiography’ - and Rachel Dratch - coming to Boston
Boston funny lady Rachel Dratch will appear at the Lyric Stage Company on Oct. 17 for an installment of “Celebrity Autobiography,’’ which features famous people reading books written by other famous people - and, occasionally, by themselves. Past participants in the New York-based show have included Justin Long, Matthew Broderick, and Ryan Reynolds. (Reynolds, who is in Boston right now to film the movie “R.I.P.D.,’’ once signed up to read a book by Kenny Loggins and his wife.) Dratch will participate in the Boston date with local actors Kathy St. George and Timothy John Smith, the show’s creators, Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, and one of our favorite Gold Dust Orphans regulars, Larry Coen, who taught Dratch at the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School in Waltham. No word on what Dratch will read, but might we suggest “Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?’’ by our own Steven Tyler? Tickets ($25, $35) are available on the Lyric website today. You can also get premium seats and access to a reception for $75.
