Following the run, Learned, a four-time Emmy winner who came to prominence in her role as Olivia on TV’s The Waltons, will perform in what is being called “an intimate, inside look” at her life and career.

“Miss Michael” is being limited to three¬†shows, July 27, 28 and 29.

Learned says she will be sharing anecdotes from her days on The Waltons and will introduce footage and out-takes, answer questions and share humorous and heartbreaking personal stories along the way.

Burrows, whose weekly Internet show appears on Lambton Shield and elsewhere, said he particularly enjoyed the chance to speak with Learned.

“This was a genuinely enjoyable experience,” he told Lambton Shield. “She has so many great memories and I feel privileged to have been able to bring some of those to my audience.”
