My Trip Down The Pink Carpet which is directed by David Galligan, author by Leslie Jordan and also performing by Leslie Jordan has been confirmed for Apollo Theatre from 24 Jan 2011 to 19 Feb 2011.
Leslie Jordan, that small man and giant scene stealer, is one of the funniest men in America. He has created an outrageous tell-all that weaves together a hilarious collection of true life stories (which are also the basis for his popular memoir, My Trip Down The Pink Carpet, recently published by Simon & Schuster).
From small-town USA to the pink carpet of Hollywood – My Trip Down The Pink Carpet tells the unlikely tale of one of America’s true comic icons. With $1,200 sewn into his underpants, Leslie — who describes himself as “the gayest man I know” — boarded a Greyhound bus bound for L.A. and never looked back.
Filled with comically overwrought childhood agonies, dangerous temptations, and revealing celebrity encounters — from Boy George to George Clooney — My Trip Down The Pink Carpet delivers a laugh-out-loud take on Hollywood, fame, addiction, gay culture, and learning to love oneself.
