“Mr. Peterson is a consummate actor and artist who amazes his audience by channeling Judy Garland.” (BroadwayWorld)
“If you were lucky enough to have seen Typhoon Judy, just sit back and reminisce over the experience with the realization that that was about as close to seeing the real Judy Garland perform live as you’re going to get.” (CampRehobeth.com)
“Christopher Peterson gave the single most wonderful performance I’ve seen in my tenure in Key West. I’ve been here long enough that I need no new friends, nor do I need recent enemies, so I will simply say to you that, when “Typhoon Judy” is part of the Waterfront Playhouse’s lineup for next season, you get the tickets, and get them now. I’m rarely blown away … thank you” (Mark Watson)
As Typhoon Viola swirls around Hong Kong, Judy Garland lies comatose in a hospital from a suicide attempt. In a hallucination, 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.
