Off-Broadway Review: Night of a Thousand Judys

For the fifth year The MeetingJustin Sayre's monthly cabaret performance, moves uptown to The Kaufmann Center for Pride Month in honor of Judy Garland. This special two act concert raises support of the Ali Forney Center, a charity organization which aids homeless LGBT youth. Taking some of Joe's Pub's finest performers with him, the evening is propelled by a very different ambiance than the downtown cabaret. While on his soap box in Joe's Pub, Sayre infuses the audience with outrage, at this concert he appeals to compassion. The performance follows the structure of The Meeting, with a set list of featured vocalists, a self-professed "middle-school theatric" staged reading, and an eleventh hour tirade by the host.
