AN EVENING OF CLASSIC LILY TOMLIN

Saturday, February 7, 2009
8 PM
Benedum Center
Pittsburgh, PA

An Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin is a nostalgic and warm presentation of Lily's “greatest hits” with more than a dozen of her famous characters — including the precocious 6-year-old Edith Ann, the irascible telephone operator Ernestine, the aging beauty adviser Madame Lupe, Lucille the rubber addict, prim Judith Beasley from Calumet City, Indiana, and Lily's most profound character, Trudy, the schizophrenic street lady who starred in The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe. It will be a night of cerebral comedy and prescient social commentary woven among Lily's affectionate reminiscences about her childhood in the Midwest.

Lily Tomlin has won six Emmys, two Tony awards and a Grammy for her astounding body of work that includes the landmark comedy series, “Laugh-In.”  Her one woman performance in Jane Wagner’s “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe” also won a CableAce Award for its film adaptation.  Other movies include Robert Altman’s THE PLAYER and SHORT CUTS, Joel Schumacher’s comedy THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN, Woody Allen’s SHADOWS AND FOG, 9 TO 5 with Dolly Parton, ORANGE COUNTY, FLIRTING WITH DISASTER and I HEART HUCKABEES.  Her memorable television roles include “Murphy Brown,” “Will and Grace” and “The West Wing.”
