Jesus Christ: King of the Jews.
Janelle Lutz: Queen of the Judys.
One of our all-time favorite Uptown Players actors returns to the role she was born to play in A Very Judy Christmas, a variety show-style extravaganza reminiscent of the best (and cheesiest) holiday specials of the 1950s and 60s.
Written and directed by BJ Cleveland, the star-studded production features Lutz as the indelible Ms. Garland along with all the elements that make us nostalgic for these types of shows, from the festive carols to surprise visits from the likes of Liza Minnelli and Ethel Merman.
Best of all, unlike those sugary sweet TV variety shows of yesteryear, this musical is for mature audiences only.
Ho! Ho! Motherf’n Ho!
