Lorna Luft Performs and Thrills

Lorna Luft Performs and Thrills

Born to legendary entertainer Judy Garland and producer Sid Luft, Lorna Luft made her performing debut singing on “The Judy Garland Show.” Since then, she has had dozens of starring and guest-starring roles on film and television, ranging from Grease 2 and Where the Boys Are ’84 to the series “Murder She Wrote” and “Sean Saves the World.” Lorna was the co-executive producer of Life with Judy Garland, the 5 time Emmy award-winning miniseries based on her best-selling memoir, Me and My Shadows.

For the past several years, Lorna has been starring in American and British productions of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. Last Friday night Lorna brought her show to On Stage at Kingsborough and shared  her unique perspective born from a lifetime in entertainment, Lorna Luft sang favorites from the Great American Songbook that were associated with family members (mother Judy Garland and sister Liza Minnelli) and family friends. In between songs Lorna told wonderful stories of the great composers that she and her family called friends. 

Lorna talked about her latest book “A Star is Born”. It’s  the back story of making of the iconic film. One of the stories Lorna recounted from the book was the great disappointment her parents experienced after the release of the film. After two weeks in the theaters the studio pulled the film and  recut it. The film was a collaboration of her parents and they were so proud of the results, only to have their vision for the film ruined. 

Having battle major health issues Lorna has not been impaired and gave a strong performance. After the show she greeted her fans and signed books and thrilled them with allowing selfies to be taken with anyone that asked.
