For tickets to Judy! A Legendary Film Career http://www.eventbrite.com/e/judy-a-legendary-film-career-tickets-13209944299


About The Shows:

Friday, November 14th: A Garland for Judy! A Cabaret Celebration of the Judy Garland Songbook brings together four preeminent Boston vocalists -- Lynda D'Amour, Pamela Enders, Jinny Sagorin, and Randy Zinkus -- in company with musical director Tom LaMark in musical highlights from Judy's film, television, recording, radio, and concert careers. The show will be hosted by special guest performer John Fricke, the world's preeminent Garland and Wizard of Oz author/documentarian.

The evening's repertoire includes selections from such cherished films as Meet Me in St. Louis, Easter Parade, A Star is Born, Summer Stock, and Strike Up the Band; the duets Judy performed with everyone from Barbra Streisand to Mickey Rooney; and the one-woman concerts that thrilled audiences from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl, from the Palace to the Palladium -- and the Boston Common and Boston Garden!

The songs will be interspersed with Fricke's behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Judy's life and professional careers. It's a must-see event for anyone who loves the ClassicAmerican Popular Songbook, the joyous pop culture of the 20th Century, and the magic of the woman who was unhesitatingly billed, reviewed, and endorsed as "the world's greatest entertainer."

Sunday, November 16th: Judy! A Legendary Film Career presents Emmy Award-winning producer/writer John Fricke in a review of highlights from Garland's historic motion picture work, tracing her on-screen performance arc from age seven as one of The Gumm Sisters in 1929 (The Big Revue) to 1963 and the London Palladium (I Could Go On Singing).

Audiences will enjoy the singing and dancing Judy, the comedic Judy, and the dramatic Judy in both familiar and unfamiliar sequences with such costars as Mickey Rooney, Fanny Brice (the original "Funny Girl"!), Gene Kelly, Spencer Tracy, and many others.

Emcee Fricke will share stories and quotes from many of those with whom she worked, gathered while researching his recent book, Judy/A Legendary Film Career, and while preparing for his appearances as a guest presenter at the Turner Classic Movies Festival in Los Angeles earlier this year and on the TCM cable network. It's a guided tour "from the inside" -- all in honor of the incomparably talented artist recently defined by TCM host Robert Osborne as "the all-around, most-talented person that's ever been in films to date."

A Special Reminder: Buy tickets to both the Friday and Sunday shows and receive the special discount price; details above!

PANOPTICON GALLERY PRIVATE PHOTOGRAPHY SALE - October 4, 2014

Panopticon Gallery
THE BOB ROGERS COLLECTION | A PRIVATE SALE

Saturday, October 4th from 2:00-5:00pm

Panopticon Gallery will be hosting a private photography sale on Saturday, October 4th for the late Bob Rogers.

Robert Rogers (September 5, 1944 – November 6, 2013), was one of New Hampshire’s preeminent photography collectors. He started collecting photographs when photography was not considered a serious art form back in the late 60’s. In 1967, Bob visited the home of renowned photographer Edward Steichen who helped him to appreciate photography as a great artist medium. Bob also came to know and befriend the prominent Boston photographer John Brooks who had a studio on Newbury Street.

Two years ago, the New Hampshire Institute of Art exhibited work from Bob’s collection, and soon thereafter, he donated some photographs to the Institute by noted photographers Dorothea Lange, Lotte Jacobi and Hope Zanes.

Proceeds from the event at Panopticon Gallery will benefit the Bob Rogers Estate, with some funds allocated to purchasing prints for the New Hampshire Institute of Art photography collection. To see a list of all of the images in the sale, Click Here.

To inquire about these photographs or attend this one day event, please R.S.V.P. by contacting the gallery at: jason@panopticongallery.com, or 781-718-5777.
