Judy Garland's 95th birthday will be celebrated by Seth Sikes, of whom NY Arts Review said, "may well be one of the saviors of the Great American Songbook." Sikes will make his London debut at Live at Zedel on Saturday, June 20th in his critically acclaimed show Seth Sikes Sings Judy Garland, an evening of Garland's most loved songs.
Hailed as "the best male singer of his generation on the cabaret scene" by Theatre Scene, Sikes will recount how Garland captivated him as a young boy in Paris, Texas, and to sing some of her greatest hits.
Seth performed this show in New York to sold-out crowds and won Broadway World's Best Tribute Show award while The New York Times said, "The performance - less an impression of Ms. Garland than an interpretation of her vibrato-heavy method of belting - was a hit."
The New York Post said, "It was a heartfelt concert. Sikes has a heap of fans and his audiences are always tightly packed and brimming with enthusiasm for his booming, jazzy renditions of their favorite songs."
Other critics have been just as enthusiastic:
