Night Falls On Emerald City,
written and performed by Larry Marsland
Saturday, May 19 at 7:30pm
Tickets $20 at the door
Night Falls On Emerald City, written and performed by Larry Marsland, is a snapshot, not a definitive moment, merely a "night in the life" sort of imagining of what might have occurred between the first and second nights of Judy Garland's scheduled appearance at the Back Bay Theater in Boston in June 1968.
The story goes thus:
In June of 1968, Judy Garland was scheduled to appear for two nights at the Back Bay Theater in Boston. The playwright, then a college student (now Lower Cape Outreach Council Executive Director Larry Marsland), ushered the first night of the run. Miss Garland showed up at the theater at ten o'clock. Her audience waited for her and cheered with relief when she finally appeared. After many apologies and vague excuses, she sang until well after midnight. It was an extraordinary evening.
Thrilled by the experience, the playwright bought a ticket for the second evening's performance but Miss Garland never showed up.
