West Hollywood: Peter Mac Brings Garland Back For the Holidays!

Good news West Hollywood! Judy is back, just for the holidays.

Female impersonator Peter Mac is bringing his spot-on impersonation of everyone’s favorite diva to the stage for four nights this week in “The Judy Garland Christmas Special Live.” This show opens tomorrow night, Wednesday, December 14 and is an homage to one of the greatest performers of our time.

DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in the motion picture industry. Read the rest of this entry »
