He joins us to tell us about their upcoming productions, including their opening production: Heartbreaker: Two Months with Judy Garland.</p><p>In 1968, when he was 26, songwriter John Meyer met Judy Garland. The next two months were an emotional roller-coaster, but his life was changed forever. Inspired by his acclaimed memoir, Meyer brings to the stage the true story of his romance with a star whose flame was dying and how he attempts to rescue her from her self-destructive demons. John Meyer and the show’s director, Michael Bush, and star, Christine Andreas join us along with Mark Fleischer.</p><p> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 15:12:00 +0000 Alan Chartock & Joe Donahue 67764 at The Hyde Collection - Adirondack Theatre Festival
