A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME TO JUDY GARLAND IN
“WORD AND SONG” WITH JODY BRISKY
Judy Garland was a mega-star before the term was coined. She made her first film appearance at age 7, and during her career earned three Oscar nominations, the first for what is listed by the American Film Institute as the 6th best film of all time, “The Wizard of Oz.”
Over the years she progressed from movies to Vaudeville and concert appearances. In 1961, she toured Europe and North America with a program labeled “Just Judy,” and a Carnegie Hall performance turned out to be a huge success. It spent 73 weeks on the Billboard charts, including 13 weeks as number one, and also received four Grammy Awards.
Actress Jody Brisky has portrayed Judy Garland before, in History Theatre’s world premiere of “Beyond The Rainbow,” a role she reprised at Florida Stage, for which she received a Carbonell nomination.
Garland in “Word and Song” will run from January 26 through February 11, 2018 at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park, 300 South Military Trail, Boca Raton. Tickets are $35. Group rates for 6 or more at a time are $30, available by calling 561-347-3948 or visit online at www.willowtheatre.org. Performances are Thursday to Sunday evenings at 8 p.m. Matinees 2 p.m.

SHEN YUN RETURNS TO FLORIDA WITH
AN ALL NEW 2018 SHOW
China was once known as the Land of the Divine. Legend has it that each dynasty came from a unique heavenly paradise. Over the course of five millennia, deities descended to Earth and took on human form, playing roles from emperors to heros and from sages to generals. Their wisdom and virtue laid the groundwork for China's rich culture. It is even said that classical Chinese dance and attire mirror those in heaven.
Everyone loves a great story, and Chinese culture has 5,000 years full of them. Historic epics, timeless literary classics, and mystical folklore make up this world of deities and magic. Each Shen Yun performance includes short dance stories of heroes who battle evil, fly up to the heavens, or even visit deep-sea places. Packed with action, courage, and humor, these tales embody the wisdom and virtues of ancient China.
