The RRazz Room at Mizner Park Cultural Center proudly presents “My Life On A Diet starring Renée Taylor”.
Best known for her iconic roles as “Sylvia”, Fran Drescher’s overbearing, food-loving mother on the hit TV series, THE NANNY, and as “Ted Mosby’s” neighbor, “Mrs. Matsen”, on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, the Broadway and Hollywood star Renée Taylor takes the audience on a trip through her 60+ year career in show business – during which time, her perseverance and dieting (as well as her 47 year marriage to actor/director Joe Bologna), have been the true constants in her life.
This is a hilarious and nostalgic, tour de force show that delivers JUICY GOSSIP – and advice she received from Hollywood stars including Joan Crawford and Marilyn Monroe – and LOTS OF LAUGHS!
