Description
Becoming Judy tackles both issues of homophobia and domestic abuse. It also delves into the reasons for Garland's everlasting and cross-generational appeal -- both in and out of the gay community. Based upon the hit Off B'way play Judy and Me and the forthcoming documentary Becoming Judy.

When you're the outcast at school , when your dad is walking time bomb life can be a bumpy yellow brick road, UNTIL, you find a friend in..."Dorothy"! Against Homophobic classmates performer Peter Mac survived a small minded Long Island Town and the bullies at school through the wit , magic and music of Judy Garland.

Mac (as himself) spends the first half of the evening telling his tale of an adolescence mired by homophobia and domestic abuse through his own personal story and the music of Garland . Magically half way through Mac transforms into the rainbow diva legend to whom he attributes his survival.

Becoming Judy recounts the true story of an adolescent Peter Mac trapped in the narrow-minded suburb of Elmont, Long Island - Mac's real hometown . An outcast at his jock high school, Sewanhaka High(unfortunately still standing in Floral Park, NY), Mac was the daily target of verbal and physical abuse from his classmates. Things are equally tenuous at home, where his father was a walking time bomb and a constant source of pain to Peter and his mother and older brother. Mac found his only escape in the music and entertainment of the legendary Judy Garland, helping him through his daily struggles with encouragement, wit, and strength. Through his passion for La Garland, Mac learned to deal with his dysfunctional family, his horrible school life, and the realization of being gay.
