Celebrity Autobiography Casting Announced at Long Wharf

Joe Pantoliano, best known for his role as Ralph Cifaretto on “The Sopranos,” Tony Award-winner Roger Bart, who recently played Dr. Frankenstein in Young Frankenstein on Broadway, and comedian Michael Ian Black join the cast of Celebrity Autobiography at Long Wharf Theatre.

The show runs Dec. 29-30 on the Mainstage. The performances take place at 7 and 9:30 pm. Tickets are $40.

In addition to his role on “The Sopranos,” Pantoliano has appeared in over 100 films and television programs. He is a Connecticut resident. Bart, a Norwalk native, received a Tony Award for his performance as Snoopy in the revival of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. He was nominated for another Tony Award for The Producers. Black, a writer and actor, began his career with The State, a sketch comedy troupe he co-founded at New York University in 1988, which went on to have a successful run on MTV. He then co-created the Comedy Central television series "Viva Variety," a fake European variety show and played Phil Stubbs, the quirky bowling alley manager on NBC's "Ed."

Rachel Dratch, Karen Ziemba and show co-creators Dayle Reyfel and Eugene Pack, have previously been announced as part of the cast. Further casting announcements are pending.

Celebrity Autobiography, created and developed by Emmy Award-nominated writer-performer Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, recently won the 2009 Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience and the 2010 Bistro Awards.
