Vicki Lawrence is back

Last May, Vicki Lawrence cancelled her scheduled appearance at the Riviera Theater at 67 Webster St. in North Tonawanda because she had appendicitis. 

She's rescheduled there for Thursday, July 25th for two shows.

One is at 2 pm and the second at 8 pm.

Although it is, in fact, a one-woman show, it is called "Vicki Lawrence and Mama — A Two Woman Show" because Lawrence will play two roles: herself and a character she created called "Mama."

Lawrence, 64, was once part of the cast of a television show called the “Carol Burnett Show (1967-1978). Later, she appeared as the character Thelma Harper, or “Mama, in a television show called “Mama’s Family (1983-1990), which is still seen in reruns throughout much of the USA.

In her Riviera performance, Lawrence will take the stage first as herself.

“My show will not be a retrospective," she said. "The show is a mixture of stand-up comedy, music and my observations about real life.

Lawrence also sings and was a one hit wonder with her 1973 hit, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.

If interested in attending this show, call the Riviera Theatre box office at (716) 692-2413.  The tickets are $37 and $47.  Their website is:  www.rivieratheatre.org.
