“This rapturous wartime romance, starring Judy Garland and Robert Walker, is also a rowdy and tender paean to the liberating vitality of New York's public life and its chance encounters.” - Richard Brody, New Yorker
June 8 & 11 | This delightful, unabashed romance marked Garland’s first dramatic, and non-singing starring role, as the sweet NYC secretary Alice Mayberry, who spends a whirlwind day with soldier Joe Allen, after the two meet-cute at Penn Station. Though well received, Garland did not perform in a non-musical again until JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG sixteen years later.
