Cecily Strong To Do Jane Wagner Play

Saturday Night Live favorite Cecily Strong (Schmigadoon!) will make her theatrical debut in The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe. Written by Jane Wagner—who has newly revised the script—the solo show premiered on Broadway in 1985, garnering a Best Actress Tony for its star Lily Tomlin. It was adapted into a film in 1991 and revived on Broadway in 2000, both again starring Tomlin. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet) will direct this new staging for The Shed, in New York City. Tomlin and Wagner will executive produce. The production runs December 21–February 5, 2022.
