The Most Unique Entertainment Concept to Hit Theatres in Decades
Maverick Entertainment Partners, LLC presents America’s Storyteller and Tennessee native, Chambers Stevens, for a special performance September 17, 2016 at Krider Performing Arts Center in Paris, TN. Stevens provides audiences with a rare first person journey through the “Human Side of Celebrity” in his touring one man show, “It’s Who You Know”. Stevens, a veteran actor, renowned acting coach and playwright, reveals his own lighthearted, sometimes hilarious, personal encounters with some of Tinsel Town’s biggest and most powerful star power during his 25 years as a Hollywood insider.
The premise for the show (originally titled “Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind”) began in Steven’s youth growing up just outside Nashville, TN where he was neighbors with the Mandrell Sisters, took acting classes with Faith Hill and had his Little League Baseball team sponsored by Johnny Cash. Upon making the move to Hollywood, his circle of celebrity friends and associates broadened to the point that he knows most “everybody that’s anybody” in the business.
During a fast paced non-stop 80-90 minute run, the show involves Stevens picking a card each with the name of a well known celebrity from about 100 scattered across the stage and reveling the audience with anywhere from 30 to 40 true to life humorous anecdotes. Adding to the intrigue, the celebrities discussed for each performance are chosen at random. Therefore, no two shows are the same.
Steven’s presentation combines razor sharp improvisational and comedic skills with his description of actual events. This isn’t tabloid or scandal material, just good clean fun offering the public an unscripted glimpse into the offstage, everyday lives of celebrities. It’s an upbeat fun ride that delivers an enjoyable laugh-filled evening at the theater.
"It's Who You Know" written and performed by Chambers Stevens is produced by Maverick Entertainment Partners, LLC. Tickets are available on line through the shows website. www.itswhoyouknowontour.com or www.maverickentertainmentpartners.com and local ticket partners Leach’s Music and Merison’s Furniture. Tickets can also be purchased via phone at 615-734-9932.
