Multi-talented performer Vicki Lawrence will bring a two-act comedy featuring her beloved character “Mama” to The Orleans Showroom on Friday, July 21.
Lawrence began her acting career as a high school student when comedic actress Carol Burnett asked Lawrence to play the role of her sister on her television series, “The Carol Burnett Show.” Lawrence starred on Burnett’s show for 11 years and won an Emmy Award. After the show ended, Lawrence appeared on various productions, including “Carousel,” “Send Me No Flowers” and “Nunsense 3: The Jamboree.” From 1983 to 1990, Lawrence starred on her own television series “Mama’s Family.” Aside from her acting career, Lawrence also hosted her own daytime talk show “Vicki!” and released her Gold record hit “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” in 1973.
Audiences will enjoy an outstanding performance by Lawrence as she brings a mix of stand-up comedy, music and observations about life to the stage. For the second part of the show, Lawrence will also bring out her most endearing character to date, Thelma Harper, or “Mama” as she is better known to her fans.
