Musical MainStage audiences have come to love Kerry Hart Bieneman as both singer and pianist. Last season, there was standing room only for her salute to Gershwin. This time around, Kerry takes on legendary entertainer Judy Garland. By her side will be the incomparable Johnny Rodgers. Among the many accomplishments of this internationally-acclaimed singer-songwriter, pianist, Broadway veteran, and recording artist is an 18-year stint as Music Director for Judy's daughter, Liza Minnelli!
