"...Tomlin is a consummate mimic of accents and mannerisms....The screenplay, by Jane Wagner, seems to confide in us, with a certain warmth and trust that mirrors one side of Tomlin's character..."
Twelve seemingly unconnected characters are interwoven in this one-woman show combining arch social commentary and brilliant humor. Lily Tomlin won a Tony Award as Best Actress for her tour-de-force performance.
Complete title: "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe."
