the passion she brought to the stage and the way she could captivate an audience. I believe Judy Garland In Concert captures that experience.

Judy Garland In Concert uses cutting-edge technology to present the sights and sounds of Judy performing her greatest hits. Audiences will experience Judy's singular stage presence accompanied by a live orchestra performing the classic arrangements that have thrilled millions worldwide. Multiple screens above the stage will incorporate rare home movies, photographs and the star's own reminiscences to create a magical evening of unique entertainment spanning her entire life and career.

"I'll never forget watching my mom perform," said Judy Garland's son, Joe Luft, "the passion she brought to the stage and the way she could captivate an audience. I believe Judy Garland In Concert captures that experience."

"This is the great American songbook of the 20th century performed by the foremost interpreter of these songs," said James Sanna, Executive Producer of Judy Garland In Concert. "In every respect, it's the greatest Judy Garland concert ever. Audiences are in for an amazing one-of-a-kind experience that includes favorites like 'Over the Rainbow,' 'That's Entertainment,' 'Chicago' and many others."

"Judy was the original American idol," said Emmy®-winning Garland authority John Fricke, who serves as Creative Supervisor for Judy Garland In Concert. "The public repeatedly voted her number one through buying movie tickets and flocking to her live performances. Judy's concerts gave audiences a remarkable sense of being alive. There's nobody like her, then or now."

Judy Garland In Concert marks Judy's debut with the Boston Pops and her return to the Boston concert stage after more than 40 years. In August 1967 she performed a free concert in Boston Common for 108,000 people.
