No, not Judi Dench.
Anyway, tonight’s attractions:
Jackie Hoffman will sing “Swanee.”
Tony winner Daisy Eagan will do “The Trolley Song.”
Emily Bergl (Desperate Housewives) will croon “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart”
And there will be more. They’ll sing ’em all and they’ll stay all night.
And now, the backstory:
“The variety show The Meeting, hosted by Justin Sayre — which is the monthly gathering of the I.O.S. (International Order of Sodomites), modeled after The Mattachine Society and other groups for gentlemen of a certain persuasion — will honor Judy Garland tonight at 7:00 PM at Joe’s Pub.
“The show is a benefit for the Ali Forney Center, an organization dedicated to homeless LGBT youth.”
Wear your ruby slippers, but don’t keep clicking them during the show. Annoying.
Happy pride. Happy Stonewall anniversary (almost). Happy Judy.
