Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two longtime buddies and “Saturday Night Live” alums, are finally coming to Atlanta with dates at the Fox Theatre on Jan. 19 and 20 of next year.
Tickets at FoxTheatre.org are not cheap, starting at $83.50. But Friday’s show at 8 p.m. is already nearly sold out. A few tickets are still available for Saturday’s 6 p.m. show. On Monday, Oct. 2, promoters added a third show at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Former Atlanta Journal-Constitution music writer Melissa Ruggieri reviewed the show last spring in Washington, D.C., for USA Today and said the pair were “funny sans the schtick. Sort of a Gen-X Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda — two cool women whose banter ping-pongs naturally and who can read each other from a mile away.”
The 100-minute show, she noted, will feature video montages of their funniest moments, improv, stand-up and a Q& A session.
