- Outer Critics Circle Nom., “Outstanding Solo Performance” – Charles Nelson Reilly, Save it for the Stage: The Life of Reilly
Charles Nelson Reilly takes audiences on his journey – sometimes volatile but always hilarious – from the Brox to Broadway and beyond. Mixing childhood reminiscences and showbiz anecdotes, Reilly shares stories from his day in some of the biggest Broadway musical hits of the 60s, becoming a television staple in the 70s, and his acclaimed career as a theatre and opera director.
“Effervescently charming, with a sly wit and a sheepish smile to go with it, Reilly spins highly intriguing tales of his odd family and his earliest efforts at showbiz, making everything seem completely of a piece, providing a model example of how to weave various motifs into a memoir for comic and emotional effect.” -Variety
