MICHAEL HUGHES

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe Preview -

At last year’s Fringe, Michael Hughes made us love him with Mickey & Judy, which chron­i­cled his life­long ob­ses­sion with Judy Gar­land through white-hot ren­di­tions of her big­gest hits and poignant au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal sto­ries about grow­ing up a mis­fit gay kid. He’s tak­ing it to the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val later this year, but not be­fore par­tic­i­pat­ing in an­other Gar­land-re­lated play, The Judy Mono­logues, Dar­ren

Ste­wart-Jones’s show based on voice tapes recorded by the singer be­fore she died.

Af­ter the West End and Broad­way suc­cess of End Of The Rainbow, about the singer’s fi­nal days, Gar­land is more pop­u­lar than ever. Keep your eye on Hughes, who’s got star qual­ity writ­ten all over him.

Starts July 6 at An­nex Theatre.

Michael Hughes con­tin­ues his
