The show Judy & Me offers a valuable lesson in tolerance

1136

Sometimes the most beautiful things are born from something truly ugly. Peter Mac, the legendary Judy Garland impersonator, well-known for making throngs of people laugh and smile at his shows, can attest to that. After all, his critically-acclaimed play, Judy and Me was born of the tragic Matthew Shepard killing in October 1998.   

Ten years following the brutal and senseless killing of the gay teen, Peter Mac will be premiering his show at  Off-Broadway on Oct. 19th at New York’s famed St. Luke’s Theatre, and in doing so, will teach the world that Shepard isn’t the first one to have faced rampant homophobia, and unfortunately, won’t be the last.
