A floral-patterned dress, a string of pearls, a purple cardigan draped over her shoulders, and a look of broken patience on her face––these are the hallmarks of Mama. After her Emmy-winning tenure on The Carol Burnett Show, Vicki Lawrence went on to create her own TV program, Mama’s Family, starring her uproarious alter ego, Thelma “Mama” Harper. The much-beloved character––known for her no-nonsense witticisms, endearingly surly demeanor, and mop of curly gray hair––takes turns sharing the stage with her creator during the two-woman show. Lawrence kick-starts the evening by mixing observational standup with musical talents evidenced in her hit “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts in ‘73. After Lawrence’s act, Mama unleashes her amusing convictions in what Lawrence reveals on Union County Performing Arts Center’s website as “new material with a more modern and cutting edge.”

Union County Performing Arts Center

As a living landmark to the performing arts and cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District, the Union County Performing Arts Center has endured history and earned its way onto the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Recently restored to its 1928 luster, the former Rahway Theatre retains the charm and grandeur of its vaudeville theater origins while encouraging new forms of entertainment. From its 1,300 seats––where crowds once gathered to watch RKO movies and WWII newsreels––audiences can marvel at the theater’s opulent, gold-crested ceilings and ponder how many dresses can be made from its rich red drapes. One of the theater’s proudest treasures is its original Wurlitzer organ, which is small in stature, but emits massive sound out of its 500 pipes.
