TheaterRESPECT, A MUSICAL JOURNEY
Former Vanderbilt University professor Dorothy Marcic is the power behind this Cliffs Notes of musical feminism, a revue bringing together some four dozen female-associated pop oldies, from “I Will Survive” and “I Am Woman” to “Piece of My Heart” and “These Boots Are Made for Walking” — all of them well sung by Aimee Collier, Kareema M. Castro, and Tiana Cheechia. Unfortunately, Marcic is not content to make the point that women have sung a lot of great songs (the sappy 1982 Charlene hit “I’ve Never Been to Me” notwithstanding). She hooks a perfectly good evening of cabaret to an on-stage narration (by Kathy St. George) that combines the author’s personal history with the social history of American women since 1900, with the civil-rights movement thrown in for good measure. | Stuart Street Playhouse, Radisson Hotel, 200 Stuart St, Boston | 800.447.7400 | Indefinitely | Curtain 8 pm Wed-Fri + 2 pm Wed [second + fourth week of the month] | 2 + 8 pm Sat | 2 pm + 6 pm [first + third week of the month] Sun | $45; $40.50 seniors with ID; $22.50 students with ID 30 minutes prior to curtain

TheaterAND NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MISS JUDY GARLAND

AND NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MISS JUDY GARLAND
Area favorite Kathy St. George channels the Wizard of Oz star in this new theater piece adapted from Garland’s hard-to-get-hold-of recorded memoir, Judy Speaks, and directed by Tony McLean. The first part of the 90-minute show is set in 1964 in a London hotel suite, where a forlorn and angry Garland sets out to tape her reminiscences for an autobiography that never materialized; that’s followed by an ebullient mini-concert in which St. George pours herself body, voice, and vibrato into Garland’s signature songs, from a clanged-out “Trolley Song” to an aching “The Man That Got Away” and “Over the Rainbow,” all accompanied by pianist Tim Evans with deference and sweep. (The arrangements are by Catherine Stornetta.) The point is that the love of Garland’s life was her audience, and St. George serves up every trademark gesture, tic, and stance as she sings Judy’s heart out. | Lyric Stage Company, 140 Clarendon St, Boston | 617.585.5678 | Indefinitely | Curtain 8 pm Wed-Sat | 3 pm Sun | $45-$50
