Tony Award winner Alan Cumming, Carson Kressley, and Sherri Shepherd will be among the stars making appearances at Celebrity Autobiography in Their Own Words, to play at 7:30pm on Mondays through March 24 at the Triad Theater. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit The Actors' Fund.

Created by Eugene Pack, the show features both solo pieces and ensemble "chamber" pieces culled from the autobiographies of celebrities including Ivana Trump, Vanna White, Mr. T, Star Jones, Kenny Loggins, Tommy Lee, Sylvester Stallone, Zsa Zsa Gabor, David Cassidy, Neil Sedaka, Britney Spears, Madonna, Burt Reynolds, and Loni Anderson, as well as the infamous memoirs of Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds.

Shepherd, a co-host of ABC's The View, will appear on March 10; Kressley, the star of the reality series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, will appear on March 17; and Cumming, who's currently onstage in CSC' production of The Seagull, will appear on March 24.

Since its debut last year, the show's rotating cast has included Joy Behar, Matthew Broderick, Cheyenne Jackson, Tony Roberts, Kristen Johnston, Andrea Martin, Karen Ziemba, Rachel Dratch, Donna Murphy, Richard Kind, Seth Rudetsky, Jason Sudiekis, Kristen Wiig, and Jack Plotnick.
