LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rita Wilson brings her vocal and songwriting talents to the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse for eight shows in December.  For each performance, Wilson will be joined by special guests for an evening of songwriters telling the stories behind their songs. The shows will be performed in the round with the audience surrounding the artists, providing an up-close and personal experience. They include: Jessi Alexander, Kristian Bush, Richard Marx, Jon Randall, Lindy Robbins, Billy Steinberg, among others.

Wilson is no stranger to the Geffen, having appeared in numerous productions, including Dinner with Friends and Love, Loss and What I Wore.  In 2009, she was presented the Distinction in Theater Award at the annual Backstage at the Geffen event.

Well-known as an actress (It's Complicated, Sleepless in Seattle, a recurring role in CBS's The Good Wife, HBO's award-winning series, Girls and, most recently on Broadway in Larry David's smash hit, Fish in the Dark), and as a film producer (Mamma Mia!, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and its upcoming sequel), her first love is music.  Wilson achieved her dream with the 2012 Decca Records release of her debut album, AM/FM, an intimate, elegant and beautifully-sung collection of classics from the '60s and '70s.  During the past two years, she has collaborated with a number of extraordinarily-talented and successful songwriters composing original material for her second album, scheduled for an early 2016 release.
