FUNDRAISER IN HONOR OF the 60th ANNIVERSARY. A star is born as Emmy-nominated actress Angela Ingersoll celebrates American icon Judy Garland, as seen on PBS.

Chicago Sun-Times exclaims, “Phenomenal. Judy Garland has been reborn.” Los Angeles Times declares, “With her incandescent star power… Ingersoll was born to play Garland.” Songs include “Over the Rainbow,” “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” and “The Man That Got Away.”
