AMC's Susan Lucci takes on Ivana Trump and Elizabeth Taylor in Celebrity Autobiography

Posted Monday, December 10, 2018 6:13:47 AM

All My Children's Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) is back on Broadway in the hilarious show Celebrity Autobiography, where she's playing Ivana Trump and Elizabeth Taylor (ex-Helena Cassadine, General Hospital).

Legendary soap opera star Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, All My Children) is lighting up the stage this month alongside Alec Baldwin, Mario Cantone, Tony Danza, and more in Celebrity Autobiography.

"It's such a great concept," Lucci told TODAY (video below) of the comedic show. "Eugene Pack created this, and he asks celebrities to read other celebrities' autobiographies or memoirs. So, it's in the other celebrities' own words. And it is hilarious."

Celebrity Autobiography doesn't just feature autobiographies and memoirs of actors.

"It's also people from sports and music and politics," Lucci explains, adding that she'll be reading from Ivana Trump's 1995 autobiography, The Best Is Yet to Come. She'll also be reading as Elizabeth Taylor (ex-Helena Cassadine, General Hospital), while Alec Baldwin will be reading as Richard Burton.

"[It's] like the greatest love triangle of all time!" Lucci jokes of the on-stage shenanigans that take place during the show. "It's like a Roshomon, with everybody's point of view at the same time."

It's anybody's guess as to who will be reading from Lucci's memoir, All My Life, but she's hoping it'll be Mario Cantone, known for playing Carrie's best pal Anthony on Sex and the City.

"I'm praying to the Mario Cantone gods that he will read my autobiography!" she enthuses. "He's just off the charts hysterical."

Fans can catch Celebrity Autobiography on Monday, December 10, and Monday, December 17, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. For tickets and more information, visit the show's official website.
