What's more, when I finally made it inside, some new door person slash coat check guy told me to ... More >>

And the throbbingly emotional show biz tale, filled with music and suicide, was set to be done one more time, with chair-talker Clint Eastwood directing and Beyonce starring. But the singer had ...

    I Will Be On Broadway With Judy Garland!

    It was inevitable, people. I'm going to be gracing a Broadway stage and I'll be positioned right next to Judy Garland herself in the form of Tracie Bennett, who won a Tony nomination for portraying the legend in Peter Quilter's End of the Rainbow.

    Broadway's Judy Garland Thanks A Young Fan

    Recently, I ran a letter from 22-year-old actor Jason Wise, fuming at a Times article which implied that Judy Garland's legacy is lost on the young, who'd supposedly rather follow the yellow brick road to more current divas.

    As the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion approaches on June 28, let's not forget that one of the subtexts in the air as that revolutionary moment in gay liberation took place was that the great diva Judy Garland had recently passed on, and the gays were understandably annoyed about it.
