Leslie Jordan, that small man and giant scene stealer, is one of the funniest men in America. He has created an outrageous tell-all that weaves together a hilarious collection of true life stories (which are also the basis for his popular memoir, My Trip Down The Pink Carpet, recently published by Simon & Schuster). From small-town USA to the pink carpet of Hollywood - My Trip Down The Pink Carpet tells the unlikely tale of one of America‚Äôs true comic icons. With $1,200 sewn into his underpants, Leslie - who describes himself as "the gayest man I know" - boarded a Greyhound bus bound for L.A. and never looked back. Filled with comically overwrought childhood agonies, dangerous temptations, and revealing celebrity encounters - from Boy George to George Clooney - My Trip Down The Pink Carpet delivers a laugh-out-loud take on Hollywood, fame, addiction, gay culture, and learning to love oneself.

The Apollo Theatre is a Grade II listed West End theatre, designed by architect Lewin Sharp for owner Henry Lowenfield and is located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the City of Westminster. The fourth legitimate theatre to be constructed on the street, it opened on February 21, 1901 with an American musical comedy entitled The Belle of Bohemia, followed by with John Martin-Harvey's season, including A Cigarette Maker's Romance and The Only Way, an adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities.

The first London theatre built in the Edwardian period, the Apollo was renovated by Schaufelberg in 1932, and a private foyer and ante room was installed to the Royal Box. The sculpted work on the stone fascia is by T. Simpson, the building is of plain brick to the neighbouring streets. The theatre has a first floor central loggia. Inside there is a three galleried auditorium with elaborate plasterwork. The theatre seats 796, and the balcony on the 3rd tier is considered the steepest in London.

The Stoll Moss Group purchased the Apollo Theatre in 1975 and sold it to Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Really Useful Group and Bridgepoint Capital in 2000. Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer purchased the theatre and several others in 2005, creating Nimax Theatres, which still owns the theatre.
