“Stories I Only Tell My Friends: LIVE!”Jun 14 , 2019 Sound Board at MotorCity Casino Hotel
(DETROIT – February 21, 2019) — Following his hit debut run in Mesa, Salt Lake City and Denver in 2017, Rob Lowe is taking his one man show, “Stories I Only Tell My Friends: LIVE!” on a national tour to include a performance at Sound Board at MotorCity Casino Hotel on Friday, June 14 at 8 p.m.
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 at Hollywood, fame, fatherhood, marriage and a life lived at the forefront of culture for four decades. Broadway World calls Lowe “As personable and charismatic of a presence onstage as he is onscreen.”
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. 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 Rob’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 best sellers 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 Best-Seller 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,” he says. “Frankly, I love meeting people, being out in front of them, hearing their comments. It’s really fun,” says Lowe.
