N STEM JULIAN CHRIICHILLI* 4 - . |a«ajjy- . V ^V^^^P V^^M^^W^^I BV ' '•: NEW YORK — Ninety minutes with Judy Garland is ! an experience of a lifetime. No performer of our time has a following like Judy. She is in a class by herself as a show* man, Her voice hasn't the melodic clarity it once had, but she held the audience completely. i , .. ' ft' There is only one Judy Garland and to see her at the famed Palace Theatre on Broadway is an unforgettable experience. She opened here Monday (this is Saturday, Aug. 4) with a cast that included comic Jackie Vernon, dancer and singer John Bubbles and two of her children, Lorna and Joey Luft, children of her ex-husband, Sid Luft who produced the show. V We went purposely late so as to miss some of the .earlier performers and to avoid sitting for three hours . . . Judy came on after the intermission and the orchestra's intro- j duction which included many of her all-time great song hits . .'. suddenly the spotlight picked her up at the back of the theatre in her gold, metallic toreador pants and jacket... in her inimitable way, she jumped, danced and twirled down the center aisle, stopping periodically to hug and kiss her ardent fans who are like none other in the world. Tim* after tlm«, cr«»c«ndet of applause rolled from th« audUnct to gr««t th« start or finish of htr songt..... on this night, «h» had a rather sovoro cold that'would have tidtlintd moit performers. In fact, th«r« art f«w, if any, singers who could havo gone on stag*... but Miss Garland is Mis* Garland and so sh* b*lt*d out th* old f*vorit*s as b*st sh* could. She wasn't quite able to do Chicago or Swanee but she included all the rest. . . This Can't Be Love, Almost Like Being in Love, Just in Time, That's Entertainment, Old Man River, What Now My Love, You Made Me Love You, For Me and My Gal, The Trolley Song, Rock-a-Bye My Baby and of course, Over the Rainbow . . . Rainbow was her encore, the only one which is unusual but at the end, she half spoke and . sang Rainbow but with a supreme effort. She hit the high ones to finish it off and her audience rose to their feet with thunderous applause. The audience loved her. • No other performer can hold an audience like Judy, who looked young and beautiful — slim and trim . . . who else could ask for a "life saver" from the crowd, catch a roll thrown from the balcony, devour one and throw the roll back with a bulls-eye heave ... she clowned and she danced and you felt privileged to see this great star in person! While Mom and I were listening to Judy, the boys were taking their first subway ride to Shea Studium to see the Mets and Giants . . . you've heard much about the stabbings and muggings on the subways but everyone we asked said they were perfectly safe. We still breathed easier when they returned home — but the GAME WAS RAINED OUT. So the ride was in vain but a doubleheader is on tap for tomorrow so we'll wave goodbye to them again as we travel to the suburbs with Sara to see two old college friends, one of whom we haven't seen since college" days. Twenty-seven years ago I took my first subway ride, alone, at night to the Polo Grounds. Maybe things haven't changed so much. N*w York overwhelms you wh*n you com* out of th* Lincoln Tunnel onto 42nd Street . . . w* arrived Friday noen •nd^traffic was'dense to put it mildly . . .our pre-arranged hotel accommodation* were terrible — after one night we changed to the City Squire Inn at Broadway and 51st and feel like the city isn't so bad ... but you see everything in one walk down Broadway — kooks in abundance and even • protest march on Viet Nam winds its way ahead of us. The city is dirty, crowded, noisy and depressive at times but it is New York. A three-day visit is unforgettable but makes you appreciate little old Algona and all the wonderful things we have! . We have crossed Expo 67 off our list . . . we've seen so much we can't digest anything quite as formidable as this Worlds Fair ... the waiting in lines scares us and let's face it, when you are traveling with four children you can't do and see everything. 25th wedding is observed by Robert Blacks Hall, Burt Sunday for tier 85*h birthday.
