We’ve got some pretty amazing local talent here in Baltimore, and on the whole, it’s enough to keep us satisfied all year round. Our homegrown music, theater, comedy and art have gained national recognition in recent years– and for good reason. But we’re also lucky enough to be a destination for performers and artists of international renown– and every so often, it’s an act that we’d camp out overnight to get tickets to. Such is Lily Tomlin— the pioneering comedian and actor who Newsweek says “made the one-person show the daring, irreverent art form it is today.” She’s all that and more, and she’ll be in town for one night only– so do not miss your chance.
Tomlin has been a recipient of six Emmys and two Tonys, among other accolades. She’s well known for creating beloved characters like Ernestine and Edith Ann, whom she played in her wild one-woman shows. She’ll bring them to life, along with other classic Tomlin material, at her performance in Baltimore, which is for Night of the Stars– an annual event presented by Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. This year’s Night of the Stars will honor community leaders Ronnie and Robert Footlick and is also a benefit, with proceeds going to Baltimore Hebrew Congregation’s Youth Community, including the E.B. Hirsh Early Childhood Center and Youth Education. Oh, and did we mention that Lily Tomlin’s going to be performing?
Night of the Stars takes place Thursday, May 7th at 8pm at the Dalsheimer Theater at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation (7401 Park Heights Avenue in Baltimore). For tickets or more information, visit www.bhcong.org
