The Capitol Theatre’s summer music programming continues with Mickey and Judy running July 27 to August 6.
The overture for Michael Hughes’ life story began when he was a child and watched the Judy Garland classic “The Wizard of Oz” with his family. How that musical and Garland herself ended up guiding his life is the subject of this utterly engaging, and beautifully heartfelt, solo show.
After playing to sold out audiences around the world, Mickey and Judy comes to the Capitol’s intimate Sculthorpe Theatre to celebrate the impact of one of the greatest stars of all time.
“Michael Hughes sings like Judy Garland but smoulders like Gene Kelly” -FAB Magazine
“A fun and funny autobiographical act, with a thoughtful core. With disarming energy and a wide-eyed innocent eager-beaver look that can flip into a winking cat-that-swallowed-the-canary mischievous grin, Michael Hughes joyfully bounds onto the stage and jumps into his life story about his obsession with Broadway and movie musicals…thoroughly delightful and entertaining. The show is heartfelt, especially in the Gershwins’ “But Not for Me”…a true pleasure. Michael Hughes has charisma and energy and is unstoppable!” -Talkin’ Broadway
