PETER MAC BEING INTERVIEWED ABOUT THE MYTH OF "OWNING" JUDY GARLAND, AND THE CHALLENGES OF CREATING HIS OWN ART.
"Hamlet is nobody's role. Anymore than Judy Garland is anybody's role." ~ Peter Mac, June 2017
Peter Mac as Judy Garland on the mythology that anyone person can portray or own the portraying of Judy Garland LIVE on stage.
He stressed the importance of conveying the positive loving Judy Garland that her friends and family cherished.
He mentions other talented people who have played Judy Garland expertly. Including the magnificent: Isabel Keating; Julie Shepard; Judy Davis; Craig Russell; and the late great Jim Bailey who passed away far too soon at the age of 77 in 2015 .
Judy lived to be only 47, Peter turned 35 a few weeks ago, and he will continue to protect and promote the positive legacy of Judy Garland - as long as he is able - on and off the stage.
