Besides appearing in more than 90 films and TV shows, including episodes of Law and Order and Beverly Hills 90210, Kellerman has resumed her singing career in album recordings and cabaret shows.

“I couldn’t be more excited that Sally has chosen to come to Atlanta and play at my club her first time here,” said Jerry Farber, owner of JerryFarber’s Side Door. “This promises to a very unique weekend, between her intimate performances in Buckhead and screening of M*A*S*H in Midtown, so for anyone looking to get up close and personal with one of the classiest individuals in the entertainment business, this is an ideal opportunity.”
