Tom Judson Returns to Dixon Place in "The Tom Judson Show"

In the wake of the smash run of his Canned Ham at Dixon Place this past March, Tom Judson returns for a special two-performance preview of his new show, The Tom Judson Show, which will run in Provincetown, MA from the end of June through mid-September. Prepare yourself for a tune-filled evening of songs both familiar and new; including a handful written by Tom himself.

“Since the musical sections of Canned Ham went over so well,” explains Tom, “I thought I’d try to do something along the lines of a more straightforward cabaret evening. Of all the different genres I’ve worked in over the years, cabaret (as opposed to Cabaret) is one form that I’ve missed. I think it’ll be fun.”

This time, though, he’ll stick to just the piano. Of course The Man Who Was Gus Mattox won’t disappoint the fans of his adult work. Skin will most likely be bared. “Y’know, to sell tickets,” says Tom. “I’ve never had a problem with gratuitous nudity.”

“Mostly, though, I have this great trove of terrific, little-known songs that I’d like to share with people. Of course there will be some stories from my crazy life thrown in, and some give-and-take with the audience. Maybe I’ll have a Q&A so they can ask me about things I didn’t cover in Canned Ham. I might even interview them.”
