It’s been 83 years since the world first heard Judy Garland sing about a place “somewhere over the rainbow,” and her star power is just as potent as it was then. Why? What is it about Judy that continues to build new generations of infatuated admirers? What can we learn from her resilience and determination to forget her troubles?
The lavishly clever arrangements bring a fresh perspective to every familiar tune in an evening that is also filled with some unexpected rare musical moments and endearing stories told with wit and humor that had our audiences cheering for encores. Just "forget your troubles” and go see Ms. Pastuszek’s Get Happy! a blissful evening of story and song that the legendary icon herself would appreciate. You won’t be disappointed!"
Get Happy" cleverly weaves together stories and memories of Judy's past along with Jenna's own experiences to create a seamless evening of delightful entertainment. Jenna's incredible musicianship and effortless vocals match and exceed the standard of entertainment our patrons are used to getting, and they are begging us to bring her back!"
...isn’t a traditional Judy Garland tribute — there will be no impersonation here. Instead, the cleverly curated playlist of classics and forgotten gems will leave Judy fans and Judy novices alike tapping their feet as Jenna pays homage to the world's greatest.
Featuring music from The Wizard of Oz, Easter Parade, Judy Live at Carnegie Hall, Judy at The Palace, The Judy Garland Show, and more, you won’t want to miss Jenna’s spirited celebration of Judy’s legacy.
