Lorna is an accomplished performer in her own right. She’s won acclaim on stage, film and television. Plus she’s also a best-selling author, recording artist and Emmy-nominated producer. Her book, Me and My Shadows: Living with the Legacy of Judy Garland, was optioned by ABC-TV and turned into a riveting miniseries starring Judy Davis. Lorna served as co-executive producer on that project, which won 5 Emmy Awards.
Lorna’s live theater experience includes a stint as the Wicked Witch of the West in the UK production of The Wizard of Oz.
Another of Lorna’s impressive accomplishments is a multi-media production, Songs My Mother Taught Me, a spectacular concert combining one of the world’s most familiar songbooks with her personal memories of her famous mother. A CD based on this event was released on First Night Records.
Film critics James Colt Harrison and Diana Saenger join Lorna in paying tribute to Judy Garland. James has written a history of MGM, the studio where Judy Garland made many of her movies. Diana is the founder and editor of Classic Movie Guide.
