Typhoon Judy


The 34th Annual Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival

created by Darrin Hagen and Christopher Peterson

August 13 - 23, 2015

Garneau Theatre, Edmonton AB.

As Typhoon Viola swirls around Hong Kong, Judy Garland lies comatose in a hospital, the victim of a storm of her own making. As she drifts towards the light, “Typhoon Judy” enters a desolate rehearsal hall with a lone piano player and begins to tell tales of her life with comedy, anecdotes and of course, song. Typhoon Judy is inspired by true events, and stars world-renowned female impersonator Christopher Peterson. This is the concert Judy never got to perform; the performance that brought her back to life.
