Cheers to Peanut
Laughter and heartfelt emotion filled the Renberg Theater Thursday night as pint-sized Leslie Jordan performed his one man autobiographical show.
Jordan told stories about his amazing adventures in Hollywood ever since he stepped off the bus at "Vine and De Longpre" in 1982 and realized the Southern California sky was as big as his ambition.
From buying underpants for Beverly D'Angelo to talking about Tennessee Williams with Faye Dunaway, Jordan's anecdotes had them rolling in the aisle.
The show turned serious (in between the laughs) when Jordan talked about his sobriety and efforts to deal with self-loathing.
Jordan has a book coming out next month and is currently touring the country with his show promoting it.
Now if a tailor would just shorten his shirt sleeves a little bit....
