An Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin
December 16, 2017
Lily Tomlin rose to national prominence in 1969 on the television series, Laugh-In, with her characterizations of Ernestine, the irascible telephone operator, and Edith Ann, the devilish six-year-old. Tomlin went on to star in six comedy television specials, which she co-wrote with Jane Wagner. In 1977, Tomlin made her Broadway debut in Appearing Nitely, written and directed by Wagner. Tomlin next appeared on Broadway in 1985 in Wagner’s critically-acclaimed play, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.
