About this show

This February, Joan Rivers debuts the world-premiere of her four-character autobiographical play, Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress. The comedy, which Rivers not only wrote, but also stars in, is a fitting peak to the Geffen's season highlighting women in theater. Set immediately before a big awards preshow, Rivers uses her dressing room (B, not A), her cheese plate (puny, not plentiful) and her producer (the bigwig's nephew, not the bigwig), as impetus for an introspective look at aging, going through life's ups and downs and being a woman in Hollywood. The show is is co-written by Douglas Bernstein and Denis Markell and directed by Bart DeLorenzo. The cast also features Yosefa Forma, Tara Joyce, and Adam Kulbersh.
