Press release

The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, welcomes Lily Tomlin on Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mainstage Theatre (Center for the Arts, North Campus). The performance is presented by Beechwood Continuing Care. There will be a Q-and-A period following the performance.

Enjoy a nostalgic evening full of smart comedy, social commentary and personal reminiscences with one of America's best-loved performers, Lily Tomlin. Featuring hilarious insights from more than a dozen of her famous characters, including: the precocious 6-year-old Edith Ann; telephone operator Ernestine; and Judith Beasley from Calumet City, Ind., Tomlin has truly come to define the bold, irreverent nature of the one-person show.

Throughout her extraordinary entertainment career, Tomlin has received numerous awards, including six Emmys, two Tony and two Peabody Awards. Her film credits include Robert Altman's "The Player" and "Short Cuts"; Joel Schumacher's comedy "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"; Woody Allen's "Shadows and Fog" ; and "9 to 5" with Dolly Parton.

Proceeds from the event benefit Beechwood Continuing Care's "Welcome Home" initiative
