Greenhouse Theater and Nancy Hays Entertainment remount this musical tribute to Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli, which closed early in March due to the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Hays and Alexa Castelvecchi play Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli in a tribute to their 1964 concert at the London Palladium. Reader critic Albert Williams reviewed the earlier production, noting "Accompanied by a trio led by pianist Robert Ollis, Hays and Castelvecchi don't try to imitate Garland and Minnelli; instead, through song and storytelling, they share their own perspectives on the stars' enduring influence on them as artists in their own right."

The Greenhouse has established policies in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including limited seating, required use of masks by patrons, and elimination of intermission. For questions regarding these and other policies, contact the box office. 773-404-7336
