Robert Evans Day continues here at Defamer, as the NYT reports that the legendary producer, not nearly satisfied that his life has been the subject of a documentary, a memoir, and a cartoon, will write and star in a Broadway show about his life. And while Evans has undoubtedly seen some truly frightening shit throughout a lifetime tearing through Hollywood, he realizes that putting himself on stage might be chilling for all involved:
"It's scary for me," he said. "And it's probably going to be scary for the people who come to see it."
The key to overcoming this fear is to make himself comfortable. Maybe Evans can do the entire show from a hottub filled with hookers, while Brett Ratner snorkels just below the bubbling water's surface.
