Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two Woman Show

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 as “new material with a more modern and cutting edge.”

Palace Theater

In the 1920s, Thomas Lamb was the man to see if you were planning to build a theater. The designer of everything from the Orpheum in Boston to Madison Square Garden in New York, his designs fanned the flames of vaudeville and inspired so much admiration in silent-film stars that they almost spoke. So when theater impresario Sylvester Z. Poli decided to built his Palace Theater, he turned to the best. Lamb designed the Palace in a Second Renaissance Revival style, mixing Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Federal motifs into the grand lobby and domed auditorium. With such a regal foundation, Poli couldn't keep his wallet closed when decorating, and spent $1 million dressing the Theater for a king. And so well outfitted, the Theater had a good run, operating with force until 1987. Then the lights on the marquee went out, staying dark for the next 18 years. But with such undeniable beauty, it couldn't stay dark forever. A three-year, $30 million restoration and expansion brought the Palace into the 21st century, turning it into a 90,000-square-foot historical landmark. Yet now, as in the 1920s, the Theater's mission remains the same: to serve as an artistic, cultural, educational, and economic catalyst for the community.
