After premiering his new show in New York City and performing all summer in Provincetown, Tom Judson brings his new solo cabaret act, "The Tom Judson Show", to Hudson for a one-night-only special performance to celebrate his fifty-first birthday. Getting back to his musician roots, Tom's new show is reminiscent of the sparkling entertainments that were once found at every smart supper club in Manhattan. Utilizing the skills that landed him on Broadway, Tom croons at the piano in a vintage tuxedo and sings an eclectic selection of songs from well known standards to some surprising obscure gems. And he peppers the musical selections with anecdotes and stories about some of the celebrities he's crossed paths with during his career.

The Tom Judson Show is an evening of song and story so entrancing that Michael Musto writing in the Village Voice insisted, "Let's get this man a show at the Carlyle Or the Algonquin. I'm serious!"

Tom Judson has appeared onstage as a singer, musician, actor and--in earlier days--as an object of lust and adoration. He has composed music for film (Whit Stillman's "Metropolitan") television ("Sesame Street") and has written songs for the likes of Ann Magnuson, Lisa Kron and others too numerous to mention. Lately he has been accompanist and second banana to drag chanteuse Varla Jean Merman. Has has been seen in the Broadway shows "Cabaret" and "42nd Street" and--between gigs--slinging hash at the Red Dot in Hudson. If you think you recognize Tom in some other context, you're probably right.
