A spoonful of Julie Andrews always makes the medicine go down.
And that’s what fans will get this December 4 at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre when the legendary 83-year-old actress graces the stage to talk about her career and life. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.
Prices are not yet available but her Nov. 13 Clearwater, Fla. date range from $72.50 to $275 before fees.
From “Mary Poppins” to “The Sound of Music,” from “Victor/Victoria” to “The Princess Diaries,” Andrews has brought elegance, grace, humor and a twinkle in her eye over five-plus decades. Her lovely voice also animates characters in film franchises such as “Shrek” and “Despicable Me.”
Andrews’ tour is similar to what Carol Burnett has done twice at Cobb in recent years: provide metro Atlantans a chance to see a Hollywood legend in a relatively intimate setting.
Her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton will facilitate the conversation and guide Q&A.
And like Burnett, Andrews has received all sorts of major honors for her work. She has an Academy Award, multiple Grammy and Emmy Awards, a Kennedy Center Honors award and a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, of course.
