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.
