The Life and Music of Judy Garland:
From "Dorothy to Disaster"
Herbert Keyser and Bett Butler
EVENT DESCRIPTION: America's childhood star, who captured the hearts of all who saw the Wizard of Oz, went through a life of one episode after another in which she was cruelly manipulated by those around her. Though she is recognized as probably the greatest individual performer ever to grace the stage, her life ended as it began, in profound sadness. In this one-time, very special live performance, Dr. Herb Keyser and Bett Butler present Judy Garland's life story, her unforgettable music and video clips of her performances. Bett has an extraordinary performing style and talent, and Herb has a narrative style all his own. At the end of the performance, attendees are invited to meet Butler and Keyser at a signing of Keyser's latest book and Bett's CD's.
