Following his hit debut run this year, Rob Lowe is taking his one man show, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: LIVE! on a limited-run tour.
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 and marriage.
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 four-decade career. “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.” In addition to Rob’s storytelling, the show will include a Q&A and plenty of insider film clips and photos.
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 sort of have that exchange you have at a book-signing,” he says. “Frankly, I love meeting people, being out in front of them, hearing their comments. It’s really fun,” says Lowe.
Lowe is currently shooting the third season of the CBS medical drama Code Black and was recently seen on the A&E unscripted series The Lowe Files. The nine-episode series follows Lowe and his two sons, Matthew and John Owen, as they travel the country exploring infamous unsolved mysteries. He recently wrapped production in Boston on Super Troopers 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2001 cult classic which will be release in theaters in Spring 2018. Lowe’s legacy in Hollywood was cemented in 2015 with the unveiling of his Walk of Fame star.
