59 years ago today on April 23, 1961, Judy Garland took the stage at Carnegie Hall for her legendary concert (The Orange Album as we like to call it). Though synonymous with so many iconic movie musicals like The Wizard of Oz (which you can tell we are quite fond of), A Star Is Born, Meet Me In St. Louis, among many others Judy only appeared on Broadway in her three concert engagements at the Palace Theatre: two in the 1950's and one in the summer of 1967.

This extraordinary night of song surprisingly included a number of Broadway melodies from The Great White Way. Judy later reprised some of these tunes on her television program a few years later.

Let's settle into our seats and imagine what it would be like to experience one of the great wonders of the musical world from the comfort of our homes.
