The remarkable performer Peter Mac brings his show Judy and Company to Oil Can Harry's in Studio City. Mac, who began performing as Judy Garland in New York City a decade ago, replicates Garland's distinctive singing with beauty and nuance. His performance has earned accolades from someone who knew Judy Garland well — screen legend Margaret O'Brien, who played Garland's little sister in the 1944 classic Meet Me in St. Louis. O'Brien was such a fan of Get Happy!, Peter Mac's previous tribute to Judy Garland, that she saw it three times. In Judy and Company, Mac portrays not just Judy Garland, but also a few of her friends: the great icons of yesteryear, Carol Channing, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, and Garland's daughter, Liza Minnelli. Unlike others who make fun of Garland's addiction issues, Mac performs a respectful, loving tribute in which he seemingly inhabits rather than impersonates. It's a must-see for fans of the woman Fred Astaire once called "the greatest performer who ever lived."
