The Judy Show

Last night my friend Joe P & I went to see Michael Holmes in "The Judy Show" at the Blue Moon.

This show is based on the successful 1960s TV series called "The Judy Garland Show".  Barbra Streisand's duet with Judy of "Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy" on this show in 1963 became a classic.  

Michael Holmes not only does an amazing job at singing/speaking like Judy Garland, he also impersonates several of Judy's guests from the famous TV series.  We were treated to visits from Bette Davis and Pearl Bailey who were hilarious!

The show isn't just singing, although Holmes is so good at it he could do a Judy concert.  But instead, he recreates the conversation with the audience and songs similar to the actual TV series.  

After the show Joe P & I hung around for a little while and got our pictures taken with Judy!

The show was VERY entertaining, and I encourage you to see "The Judy Show" if you can.  Check out the schedule here.
