My Life On A Diet

North Shore Center for the Performing Arts
9501 Skokie Blvd Skokie

In MY LIFE ON A DIET, Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning writer and actress Renee Taylor, perhaps best-known today as Fran Drescher's outspoken mother, Sylvia Fine, on the CBS sitcom The Nanny, looks back on a life full of memorable roles in Hollywood and on Broadway, and just as many fad diets. A self-described "diet junkie" who used to think that if she ate like star, she'd just might look and live like one, Taylor dishes out both juicy anecdotes about and weight loss tips from Hollywood legends such as Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, and Barbra Streisand. She also shares hilarious and poignant stories about Joseph Bologna, her late husband and partner in work for 52 years. In telling about her highs and lows - on and off the scale - this comedy legend proves the ability to laugh gets you through it all.

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Renee Taylor is a funny lady! Do not let the title of her one-woman show , now on stage at The North Shore Center For The Performing Arts in Skokie, "My Life on a Diet" scare you off. This is a true story-telling experience by a lady who has lived the life we hear. Now in her "eighties", Ms Taylor spends the majority of the 95 minutes ( no intermission) sitting at a comfy desk where the book that she and her late husband Joe Bologna wrote, that details her life, from being a little girl until just "the other day"."

Picture This Post - Recommended

"...Renee Taylor is, in this writer's view, charming in MY LIFE ON A DIET. There does not seem to be a mean bone in her body, nor an experience from which she did not learn, laugh, and move forward. Star-struck fans of stage and screen from 1950's onward will enjoy Renee's company for the evening. If you are seeking high drama or raucous laughter, find other shows recommended in our Picture This Post Best Plays roundup-this one is probably not for you."
