After breaking an all-time box office record at The Cat Theatre in Carmel over Independence Day weekend, Magic Thread Cabaret is bringing its hit show “Katy Gentry: Judy Garland LIVE!” to downtown Indianapolis’ thriving Mass Ave Arts & Cultural District for a special engagement this Christmas season. The District Theatre (formerly Theatre on the Square) will proudly host a six-show run of this moving cabaret. After Katy’s success in Carrmel, we’re eager for our audiences to enjoy a night of beautiful music in the intimate space of our Cabaret Stage. A box office smash during its July run at The Cat, “Judy Garland LIVE!” will delight new audiences with the powerful voice and personal touches that Gentry brings to the iconic entertainer’s songbook. Gentry will sing “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “When You’re Smiling,” “The Man That Got Away,” “Zing! Went The Strings of My Heart,” and many other classics. A formidable talent in her own right, Gentry weaves stories of her own struggles and triumphs, relating them to the music and milestones of her idol. Accompanied by the dynamic trio of music director and pianist-composer Dustin Klein, bassist Hannah Marks and drummer Greg Wolff, Judy’s spirit fills the room “in a way that, while reminiscent of the legend, also allows Gentry’s own star power to shine through,” as one arts critic so accurately described.
