Actor’s Express presents “An Evening with Rex Reed,” a one night-only performance with the legendary author and critic, on Sunday, Jan 23, 2011.  The event promises a smorgasbord of behind-the-scenes stories of Hollywood and Broadway, drawing on Reed’s prolific and storied career as a critic, author, journalist and actor.

Rex Reed’s film reviews have appeared in the New York Observer, Vogue, GQ and Women’s Wear Daily. He has written eight books, and his essays and articles have appeared in virtually every national magazine and newspaper in London and the United States. In addition to his writing, Reed is an actor who has appeared in such films as Myra Breckinridge, Inchon, and Superman, has served on the juries of the Montreal, Venice and Berlin film festivals, and for five years, he co-hosted the nationally syndicated television show “At the Movies.” An ardent music lover and supporter of Broadway show music, Reed is a two-time Grammy nominee who has written liner notes for such acts as Liza Minnelli, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Barbara Cook and more.

“It is a massive thrill to have someone of Mr. Reed’s renown joining us at Actor’s Express,” says Artistic Director Freddie Ashley. “I can’t wait to hear his stories and anecdotes about the fabulous people he knows and the fabulous life he has led.”  Showtime for “An Evening with Rex Reed” is 7:30 pm at the Actor’s Express (887 W. Marietta St., Suite J-107).  Tickets are $30 and are available by calling the Actor’s Express Box Office at (404) 607-SHOW or by visiting www.actors-express.com.
