Judy Garland in Concert
On Sunday, I'll be going to Judy Garland in Concert. For almost a year I've been looking forward to this show coming to Minneapolis. Tour information:
The legendary voice of Judy Garland and the world's greatest symphony orchestras join together to create this remarkable concert event. Through the magic of breakthrough technology, the incomparable performer returns to the stage!
My friend, John Fricke, was part of the creative team who put together the show. It premiered last year at the Boston Pops to rave reviews:
An astonishing achievement, both technically and artistically. The Symphony Hall audience was riveted.
The Boston Globe
For Garland fans, it was an opportunity to bask in her electrifying talent. Far from being a gimmick, this melding of technical expertise and performance gave Pops audiences an opportunity to see what Garland could do best - seduce an audience with her dynamic deliveries of many familiar songs.
Audience members can expect a concert event designed like a theatrical performance.
