I love all my friends; each one talented in his/her own way. Some are really good at skipping. One, can burp the alphabet...in cyrillic, and yet another can channel "McGregor," the sock industrialist.
And then there's Judy Marshak. She can do all of the above, and she writes, sings, and performs like no one else. She has nurtured a wonderful career in the theatre; twice nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award, for "Mrs Potts" in the original Toronto stage production of "Beauty and the Beast," and then for "Fleur," the Menopausal Mama in Anne Marie Macdonald's "Anyting Moves."
Judy was 4 seasons playing "Marilla" in "Anne of Green Gables" in Charlottetown, and revelled in the role of "Mrs. Tottendale," created for her and her ukelele, in the Toronto production of "The Drowsy Chaperone." She is a regular in the Toronto music scene; cabaret shows, jazz and vocal trios, more leads in musical theatre, appearing at "The Old Mill" as part of the Downtown Toronto Jazz Festival, and in their "Home Smith Lounge" for the Friday Night Great Jazz Vocalist Series. Judy has also won several awards for her song writing, and recently released a new CD entitled "A Matter of Time."
And all of this, wrapped up in such gorgeousity, playing, with her ukelele, July 29th and 30 at Toronto's "Flying Beaver Pubaret,"
488 Parliament Street, north of Carlton. She is so fun on stage. I guarantee that you will enjoy yourself. You'd be a fool not to go. You don't want to be a fool do you? 'Thought not.
