Rob Lowe Brings Hit One-Man Show to the Palace May 31
Posted: April 11, 2019
Following his sold-out debut, Rob Lowe is taking his one-man show, “Stories I Only Tell My Friends LIVE!,” on a national tour. Inspired by the success of his two NY Times best-selling memoirs, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and Love Life, Rob has created an all-new peek behind the curtain of Hollywood, fame, fatherhood, marriage, and a life lived at the forefront of culture for four decades. From the Brat Pack to “The West Wing” to “Parks and Rec” and beyond, “Stories I Only Tell My Friends LIVE!” is packed with witty fun and one-of-a-kind insights spanning an iconic career.
CAPA presents “Rob Lowe: Stories I Only Tell My Friends LIVE!” at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Friday, May 31, at 8 pm. Tickets are $33.50-$253.50 (VIP) and can be purchased in-person at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.capa.com, or by phone at (614) 469-0939 or (800) 982-2787.
Broadway World raves “The humor is first class, with the jokes and funny anecdotes keeping the audience in stitches for most of the night.” In addition to Lowe’s storytelling, the show will include a Q&A and plenty of insider film clips and photos. “This isn’t a regurgitation of the books, because that wouldn’t be very much fun,” Lowe says. “This is very much its own beast, but it does have some of the same feel of the books.”
Lowe released his memoir, Stories I Only Tell my Friends, in 2011. The book was an instant hit, spending consecutive weeks in the top four of The New York Times bestsellers and making it onto GQ’s “Best of 2011” book list. Lowe’s second book, Love Life, was published in 2014 and also landed a spot on the NY Times bestseller list. “I decided to put what would be the third book into a show where I could go out directly to an audience and share and have an exchange with them directly,” says Lowe. “Frankly, I love meeting people, being out in front of them, hearing their comments. It’s really fun.”
