When Judy Garland stepped out onto the stage at Carnegie Hall on April 23, 1961, the raucous standing ovation that greeted her was just the start of what has been called “the greatest night in show business history.”  Award-winning actress/singer Jody Briskey will channel Garland and recreate that night’s iconic performance in Garland in Word and Song at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park.

Actress Jody Briskey has portrayed Judy Garland before, most notably in History Theatre’s world premiere of Beyond the Rainbow, a role she reprised at Florida Stage, and for which she received a 2006 Carbonell nomination, and at the Theatre at Arts Garage.
“I knew there was something about her, especially when she sang, that latched on to my soul.  As I developed my own passion for singing, I always made sure I sang something of Judy’s.  She had a way of singing a standard song you may have heard a dozen times by other performers but by the time she enveloped it with her heart it became uniquely hers.  It’s this heart that I feel as I bring her songs to my audiences. Over the years I’ve been given more opportunities to embrace Judy’s music and it has led to this show of songs and stories.” — Jody Briskey
