Lily Tomlin to perform 1st show for Central Illinois

It's taken more than 40 years for Edith Ann and Ernestine and Judith Beasley and Sister Boogie Woman to find their way to Central Illinois.

But here they come, en masse, to the University of Illinois Springfield Sangamon Auditorium this weekend, along with their manager, Lily Tomlin.

And that's the truth.

(Insert big fat raspberry here.) (Insert even bigger rocking chair here.)

"I don't know," she begins in an interview almost as entertainingly anecdotal as one of her Tony/Emmy-winning one-woman shows. "Do you think enough people will still care after all these years?"

What: "An Evening with Lily Tomlin"
Where: 7 p.m. Sunday
When: U of I at Springfield Sangamon Auditorium, Springfield
Tickets: $40 to $65
Box office: 800-207-6960

The performance was featured in a June 10, 2010, article in the Bloomington Pantagraph.
