Judy Garland’s triumphant 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall will be spotlighted in the second installment of the new David Rubenstein Atrium series, The History of the World in 100 Performances With Adam Gopnik.
The free event will be presented March 8 at 7:30 PM on the Atrium’s Frieda and Roy Furman Stage. Through commentary and performance, New Yorker writer Gopnik, WNYC host Jonathan Schwartz and Tony-nominated singing actress Melissa Errico will delve into "what is widely considered one of the greatest nights in show business history," according to press notes.
The event will be live-streamed, free-of-charge, and available for 24-hours at lincolncenter.org/lc-live.
The series will continue March 29 at 7:30 PM with an evening paying tribute to Marlon Brando's performance as Stanley Kowalski in Elia Kazan’s 1952 film A Streetcar Named Desire.
The David Rubenstein Atrium, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage is located at Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information visit LincolnCenter.org/Atrium.
