PORTSMOUTH — The Players Ring in Portsmouth will play host to “Legends: The Music Of Judy Garland” written and performed by Kelly Caufield. The show is co-written and directed by Brian P. Allen with musical direction and arrangements by Victoria Stubbs. Michael Lynch is the Production Stage Manager.
“Legends: The Music Of Judy Garland” will feature many of Garland’s most well known songs as well as a few surprises. The show is highlighted with a couple of major medleys –one devoted to her movie music and one devoted to her Gershwin recordings. Caufield will interpret songs from a number of great composers including Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen and the team of Rodgers & Hart.
Part concert, part cabaret and an all around great show, “Legend” gives audiences a chance to reminisce while hearing all new arrangements of these amazing songs from the American Songbook. Whether you are nine or 90, you will love hearing great tunes such as: “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,”“ Stormy Weather,”“ Johnny One Note,”“ Come Rain or Come Shine,” and Rock-a-bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody.”
