Judy Garland Sings Rufus Wainwright, Scissor Sisters, MIKA, Elton and More. Oh My!

If you happen to be in San Francisco in the next few weeks, check out Connie Champagne as Judy Garland in "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." It is a really fun show! Connie does an amazing job of portraying a modern repertoire in classic Judy-style.

In addition to covering Rufus Wainwright, Scissor Sisters, Elton John, MIKA -- Judy also performs hits from John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

The only non-Garland, post-Wizard of Oz, We're Not In Kansas Anymore, ruby red slipper, yellow brick road song she did not touch upon was something from the musical Wicked.

The show runs Fri - Sat - Sun through August 12 at the New Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.
