(Boston,MA) It feels entirely appropriate to rediscover the music and legacy of Hollywood's Golden Age songbird. And lucky for us, there's a special way to celebrate, at Boston's Club Cafe who opens its doors every Saturday night with acclaimed tribute artist Peter Mac as a triumphant 1960's-era Judy Garland.
BRAND NEW SHOW: Judy Garland AND Company. Self-described "male actress" Peter Mac has wowed audiences and critics alike for over a decade with his portrayal of the late, great Judy Garland. Now Judy Garland is spending the evening with some of her her favorite gal pals! Those dropping by may include: Mae West; Elaine Stritch; Carol Channing; Liza Minnelli; Tallulah Bankhead; Bette Davis; Katherine Hepburn; and/or anyone of more than 50 women Mac portrays. A new show every week. The show has Peter Mac performing all roles as the iconic ladies of yesteryear
The entire show is sung live by Mac who has won awards for his accurate and loving portrayal of the woman Tony Bennett called "The World's Greatest Entertainer." Though June 22, 2016 marked the 47th Anniversary of Judy's untimely passing at the tender age of 47. Mac treats Judy as if she never left us. The same holds true for the over 45 different women he portrays.
Recent celebrities in Mac's audiences include Mila Kunis (star of that 70's show, and Garland's costar in Meet Me In St. Louis, Margaret O'Brien. Mila Kunis said "Peter Mac is Judy Garland I can not wait to see this show again!"
One of the many nights Margaret O'Brien came, she brought Peter a note and said to read it onstage, but not beforehand. The note read, "Have a great opening! Sorry we couldn't be with you tonight. All the best on a successful run. Love, Joey Luft and Liza Minnelli."
Talk about emotional. The Garland heirs are very wary of Judy impersonators - especially in the gay community - because they often play up or make up negative aspects of her life. Mac puts it best: "Judy's perceived problems were a very small thread in a very large tapestry in an AMAZING life and career. And that's not why Judy's so loved and well remembered. She was not a tragic figure."
As such the show show is a loving and affectionate tribute to the World's Greatest Entertainer. It is both critically acclaimed and award winning. Peter Mac as Judy Garland won the prestigious Motion Picture Council Award for his "Portrayal of Judy Garland". The award was presented to him by Margaret O'Brien and the late great Mickey Rooney in a gala celebration.
Mickey Rooney in his presentation speech about Peter as Judy said:"This is beyond an imitation. Peter Mac is Phenomenal!"
We believe a legend never dies! So won't you join us at Club Cafe? Come see the show that more than 2.3 Million people have seen Peter Mas as Judy Garland live in the 12 years that Peter has been paying tribute to this amazing icon.
Showtime is 8pm. However, the room opens for dinner and/or drinks seating at 6:30PM. As a special incentive all audience members will receive 20% off the food portion of their bill!
