musical theatre 101

judy garland, for me, was the epitome of the singing actress.

this is a video i think every student of musical theatre needs to watch and learn from. i've been known to sequester my favorite young singers in a living room and force them to watch it. it's from the "born in a trunk" segment of garland's 1960's television show. the sound is very, very quiet, and it's important you hear every subtlety and nuance, so bust out the headphones if you got 'em.

the song is somehow fitting to what milwaukee's skylight theatre is going through of late. and monday, june 22 marks the 40th anniversary of judy's death. thanks brian, for reminding me.
