Now Playing Onstage in Tucson - Week of 3/16/2014 AMERICAN LEGENDS
UA Centennial Hall
3/23-3/23/2014
The Joffrey is a company of firsts. It was the first dance company to perform at the White House at Jacqueline Kennedy's invitation, first to appear on television, first American company to visit Russia, first classical dance company to go multi-media, first to commission a rock 'n roll ballet and the only dance company to appear on the cover of TIME Magazine. The "American Legends" program is a showcase of American creativity. Interplay reveals choreographer Jerome Robbins at his most playful. Son of Chamber Symphony by Houston Ballet artistic director Stanton Welch has elements reminiscent of classical ballets such as Swan Lake, and yet has a distinctly contemporary perspective. Twyla Tharp's classic Nine Sinatra Songs explores infatuation and romance-to a backdrop of high heels and legendary crooning.

Lily Tomlin, one of America's foremost comediennes, continues to venture across an ever-widening range of media, starring in television, theater, motion pictures, animation, and video. Throughout her extraordinary career, Tomlin has received numerous awards, including: six Emmys; a Tony for her one woman Broadway show, Appearing Nitely; a second Tony for Best Actress, a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics' Circle Award for her one woman performance in Jane Wagner's The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe; a CableAce Award for Executive Producing the film adaptation of The Search; a Grammy for her comedy album, This is a Recording as well as nominations for her subsequent albums Modern Scream, And That's the Truth, and On Stage; and two Peabody Awards-the first for the ABC television special, Edith Ann's Christmas: Just Say Noel, and the second for narrating and executive producing the HBO film, The Celluloid Closet. In 2003, she was the recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor presented at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Early Life. Tomlin was born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up in a working-class neighborhood on the outskirts of one of the city's most affluent areas. Although she claims she wasn't funny as a child, Tomlin admits she "knew who was and lifted all their material right off the TV screen." Her favorites included Lucille Ball, Bea Lillie, Imogene Coca, and Jean Carroll, one of the first female stand-ups on The Ed Sullivan Show. After high school, Tomlin enrolled at Wayne State University to study medicine, but her elective courses in theater arts compelled her to leave college to become a performer in local coffee houses. She moved to New York in 1965, where she soon built a strong following with her appearances at landmark clubs such as The Improvisation, Cafe Au Go Go, and the Upstairs at the Downstairs, where she later opened for the legendary Mabel Mercer in the Downstairs Room.
