Judy Garland musical tribute set for latest New York City hotspot

New York’s newest hotspot for intimate dining and extraordinary music will present acclaimed tribute artist Peter Mac as Judy Garland on Saturday, August 12 at 7:00PM.

Celebrating the 101st birthday of this iconic performer, beloved by the LGBTQ+ community since the beginning, Mac helps the audience rediscover the music and legacy of Hollywood’s golden-age songbird live at CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE.

This award-winning musical recreation of the triumphant 1960s-era Judy Garland is all sung live, with no lip-syncing. In this fantasia, the “rainbow diva” is 101 years young and still entertaining the masses, reminiscing about the old days, commenting on current events, and belting out her signature tunes as well as a few “that got away.” Tickets are $20-$50, in addition to a service charge and a two-item food and beverage minimum. A livestream option is available for $20. 

Peter Mac has gained an ardent fan following around the country over the last two decades for his loving, respectful and empathetic portrayal of Miss Garland. Mac chooses to focus on her music and great wit, rather than using her human frailties for cheap laughs. In 2012, in honor of his tenth anniversary performing as Garland, Mac received the Southern California Motion Picture Council Golden Halo Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Live Performance,” presented to him by Oscar winner Margaret O’Brien and Garland’s best friend and co-star, Mickey Rooney.

Part supper club (check out the delicious menu here!), part listening room, CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE highlights a diverse range of musical genres and is a welcome addition to the list of high-end venues on the New York performance scene, deftly balancing a glamorous interior, traditional hospitality, and top musical talent. Providing a wide variety of upscale American menu items, with distinguished wine and bespoke cocktails, audiences will experience some of the best touring performers in the world, alongside local emerging artists. 

CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenues), downstairs inside the Hilton New York Fashion District. Purchase tickets at @chelseatableandstage
