“Life Coach,” Charles Grodin’s new play received a stellar reading Wednesday night at in the Pasadena Playhouse’s new (99-seat) theater to bear the name of Carol Burnett’s daughter, Carrie. Burnett played the title role and those getting  “Coach-ed” were the teams of Dabney Coleman and Jeannie Berlin, Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna, Ed Begley Jr. and Marion Grodin (Charles G’.s daughter). The cast convened for the first time in the afternoon for a reading,they had somethng to eat and read the comedy. Actor-author Grodin is so busy, he tells me, “If anybody sees me, it’s a sighting.”

Royalties from his upcoming book, “If I Only Knew Then — Learning From Our Mistakes” go to HELP USA to help the homeless. His book has contributions from: Walter Cronkite, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Carol Burnett, Shirley MacLaine, Alan Alda, and Regis Philbin with whom Grodin and wife Elissa had dinner Thursday night.
