The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts presents the Los Angeles premiere of Renée Taylor’s MY LIFE ON A DIET, the award-winning, autobiographical comedy written by Taylor and Joseph Bologna, which opens its 12-performance, limited engagement on Friday, April 5 and continues through Sunday, April 14, 2019, in The Wallis’s Lovelace Studio Theater. Taylor, co-star of “The Nanny” television series and an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning writer and actress, 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 believed that if she ate like a star, she just might look and live like one, Taylor dishes out juicy anecdotes about — and weight loss tips from — such Hollywood legends as Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand. She also serves up entertaining and poignant stories about the late Bologna, her partner in work and life for 52 years. Considered a comedy legend, she tells about her high and lows – on and off the scale – and shows audiences that the ability to laugh gets you through it all. My Life on a Diet, originally directed by Bologna, made its New York premiere in 2018 with a critically acclaimed, extended run Off-Broadway at the Theatre at St. Clements and has embarked on a national tour. In November of last year, Taylor and My Life on a Diet won the annual United Solo Special Award for their significant contributions to solo theater during the year.
Critics have described My Life on a Diet as "fascinating, lighthearted, spicy” (New York Times), and as providing “laughs and unexpectedly tender moments” (Newsday). According to the New York Post, “The inimitable Renee Taylor’s new show is wonderful… an evening laced with love and laughter.”
