“Hattox Hall provides us with a fantastic opportunity to invite very special artists to share their unique gifts with our audiences in an intimate setting,” said Executive Producer Lou Spisto. “I’m delighted that Judy, who appears in a bravura dramatic role in Lost in Yonkers downstairs in the new White Theatre, will share her prodigious musical talents with us in our wonderful new hall upstairs.”
