From press release
Mickey & Judy, starring recording artist, Michael Hughes (David Foster & Friends), will receive World Premiere at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival produced by Random Hero Entertainment.
Mickey & Judy, is a hilarious, pseudo-memoir, chronicling Hughes’ childhood obsession with musicals and his journey from psychiatric ward to Off-Broadway. Chock-full of comical anecdotes about his childhood spent cross-dressing and channeling Judy Garland, dramatic readings from his actual doctor’s charts, and a musical score that borrows from Broadway classics and the Judy Garland songbook. Mickey & Judy is about falling in love and following your dreams.
Michael Hughes has performed on stages around the world most notably in Canada, Japan and in New York City. The singing actor was last seen as the lead vocalist for the National Ballet of Canada’s West Side Story Suite at the Four Seasons Centre for the performing arts. Prior to that, Michael joined legendary producer, David Foster, on his highly successful, sold-out North American Tour, David Foster & Friends. A sought after Cabaret performer, Michael has performed sold-out shows in Toronto at The Berkeley Street Theatre, The Mod Club Theatre, Statler’s Piano Lounge and at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City. Michael’s self-titled debut album was a 2010 Toronto Independent Music Award (TIMA) nominee for Best Adult Contemporary Album and the 2009 TWISI Award Winner for Best Album and People’s Choice Best Album.
