Night of a Thousand Judys Benefit to Celebrate "The Wizard of Oz"
28 Feb 2014
The fourth annual Night of a Thousand Judys, the benefit that celebrates all things Judy Garland, will return June 16 with a tribute to the 75th anniversary of "The Wizard of Oz" 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.
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.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
