The 11th annual Night of a Thousand Judys will play Joe's Pub June 12 at 7 PM.
The Pride concert, which honors the iconic Judy Garland through special skits, songs, and tributes, benefits the Ali Forney Center. This years event will feature performances by Julie Benko, Telly Leung, Samantha Williams, Alexandra Silber, Carole J. Bufford, and Elizabeth Ward Land. Additional performers will be announced at a later time.
Written and hosted by Justin Elizabeth Sayre, the evening is directed by Peter James Cook with choreography by Jason Wise and music direction by Drew Wutke.
“We are thrilled to be back celebrating Judy’s legacy and the great work of The Ali Forney Center,” shares Sayre. “This year is especially important since our friends at AFC are in the process of expanding their reach. Their new drop-in center will enhance the badly-needed services they provide to our kids on the street. The facility will open next month around the time of our event, so we’re happy to partner with them to help make this a reality. So please come to our event to support their wonderful work, or donate to the cause if you can’t attend.”
Night of a Thousand Judys is produced by Dan Fortune and Adam J. Rosen, with Dan Fortune serving as executive producer.
