But this June, the show is once again reincarnated for a single concert performance in the magnificent Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, under the apt title of Judy’s Back.
Boasting its biggest band yet, this show contains some corkers of Old Broadway, meaning I am happy. Playing the soaring, larger-than-life music of this era is a unique thrill. For me, it’s the timbre and straightforwardness of earlier jazz mixed with the energy and expanse of modern show tunes that really makes the style special. Really though, I live for just the last few bars of Almost Like Being In Love.
Judy’s Back is on at the Hippodrome Casino on Friday 22 June, 8pm.
