Sierra Boggess (The Phantom of the Opera), Austin Scarlett (“Project Runway”), 60s pop singer Karen Wyman, two-time Tony Award nominee Alison Fraser, Jackie Hoffman (Hairspray) and jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein have joined the lineup for the fourth annual Night of a Thousand Judys, which will take place June 16 at Merkin Concert Hall.
Presented as part of Justin Sayre's series The Meeting*, the annual event serves as a benefit for the Ali Forney Center and its mission to assist LGBT homeless youth.
As previously announced, Jason Wise will direct and choreograph the evening that will "honor the iconic Judy Garland with special skits, tributes and songs from her legendary career as movie star, recording artist and stage performer." Expect a special tribute to "The Wizard of Oz" as well.
The 8 PM concert will also feature Grammy Award winner Jane Monheit, Tony nominee Rory O'Malley (Book of Mormon) and Julia Murney (Wicked), as well as R&B singer Sarah Dash, folk-rock performer Erin McKeown and Gabrielle Stravelli.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
