PHOTO FLASH: Leslie Jordan Thinks Pink at NYC's Easter Parade
Jordan will present a limited Off-Broadway engagement of his autobiographical solo show, My Trip Down the Pink Carpet, at the Midtown Theater (163 West 46th Street), April 14-July 3, with an opening on April 19. David Galligan will direct, and the run is being presented by Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner.
The show is filled with comically overwrought childhood agonies, offbeat observations, and revealing celebrity encounters -- from Boy George to George Clooney -- and promises to deliver a laugh-out-loud take on Hollywood, fame, addiction, gay culture, and learning to love oneself.
Jordan is best known for his Emmy-winning role as Beverley Leslie on Will & Grace, and for his work in writer Del Shores' Sordid Lives. His other film and television credits include Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, Murphy Brown, and Monk.
