good morning! legendary comedian, entertainer and businesswoman joan rivers just made her london acting debut (at age 75) in a self-penned autobiographical play called a work in progress by a life in progress which is playing now at leicester square theatre through september 18th (ms. rivers will do another run in december & january – i’m so freakin’ bummed i missed her play during its los angeles run) i know a lot of people like to take cheap shots at joan and her many plastic surgeries (making her look less than natural…) but she has done so much in her lifetime – which has been filled with many up and downs and thankfully she’s still carrying on today – ms. rivers is a trooper and she’s probably way more qualified to be vice president than alaska lady sarah palin! i seriously miss seeing her doing red carpet arrival interviews (with her daughter melissa rivers in tow) ms. rivers always added a wacky & unpredictable element to every event she covered (i’m sorry but watching lisa rinna & joey fatone doing red carpet interviews is not nearly as fun…and ryan seacrest is a bore) everybody seriously needs to appreciate joan more (just look at her below giving the one-fingered victory salute) she’s not going to be around forever and i for one will miss her sassiness & spunk when she’s gone – long live ms. rivers! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo

A four-handed, part-confession, part-performance comedy drama based on Joan Rivers own larger-than-life rollercoaster life. While it presents the Joan that we know, from her biographies, TV appearance and live stand-up shows, it also reveals the woman behind the public face that the public have never seen before. Set in Joan’s dressing room backstage at the Oscars ceremony, Joan is preparing for one of her legendary annual TV catwalk commentaries on the fashion hits and disasters at Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. But all is not well… her dressing room is B, not A!!; her complimentary cheese is puny, not plentiful; and her producer is the bigwig’s nephew, not the bigwig! The tension and drama are the catalyst for an introspective look at aging, going through life’s ups and downs and being a woman in Hollywood.
