It was daring, nervy, and nearly sacrilegious, but Rufus Wainwright pulled it off. Re-creating, song by song, Judy Garland's famed 1961 Carnegie Hall show -- one of the most legendary of classic showbiz performances -- Wainwright brought his own special magic to the famed stage, reaffirming his status as a contemporary icon while paying loving tribute to his muse. This exuberant and affecting show includes such Garland signature numbers as "The Man That Got Away," "After You've Gone," "Do It Again," and , of course, "Over the Rainbow." Wainwright may not sound anything like Judy, but what matters most is that he's tapped into the heart of her unique and generous performance style. The Carnegie Hall show was then brought to the London Palladium, the site of another monumental Garland appearance, and there Wainwright won over a new audience, as seen on a separately available DVD.
