The Search Continues For Intelligent Life

The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In The Universe

Jane Wagner's beautiful and funny play about the big questions.

Lily Tomlin helped to create a character written by Jane Wagner who believes she is communicating with higher beings from outer space. Tomlin won a Tony Award for her portrayal of multiple characters in the show, The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In The Universe. The show gets a revival at Jefferson County Open School this week.

I'm attending tonight and tomorrow night. Hope you can join me. Here's the details for our special Fresh City Life search:
