VINTAGE PLAYBILL: Judy Garland at the Palace, 1967

News   VINTAGE PLAYBILL: Judy Garland at the Palace, 1967 On July 31, 1967, Judy Garland premiered her third show at New York's Palace Theatre. 

The engagement, produced by her former husband Sid Luft, would mark her final appearance on the Broadway stage. 

She opened "At Home at the Palace" on July 31, 1967, to a warm reception from critics and fans alike.

"Judy Garland returned to the Palace last night," Vincent Canby wrote in the New York Times, "like some raffish, sequin-sprinkled female Lazarus."

The show also featured performances from tap dancer John Bubbles, juggler Francis Brunn, and Garland's "proteges," her children Joey and Lorna Luft. Her song selections included "The Man That Got Away" and "Just in Time."

"Some time during this engagement she will undoubtedly reprise some of the numbers that are hers alone," the Playbill promised, "and she will certainly sing that song about the Rainbow."
