The San Francisco Chronicle hails eighteen year old Judy Butterfield as a young entertainer "on her way toward the rainbow" reminiscent of "a mix of Elizabeth Taylor and Scarlett O'Hara." A protégé of "Queen of Cabaret" Andrea Marcovicci, she made her New York debut at the age of fourteen at the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention. Her signature show Judy Sings Judy: Songs of a Young Garland is directed by acclaimed Cabaret Director Clifford Bell and premiered at the famed Empire Plush Room in April 2005. Judy's first CD, Judy Sings Judy: Live at the Empire Plush Room was released by Fynsworth Alley (www.fynsworthalley.com) in September of 2005. She has performed at the famous Cinegrill at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, at The Gardenia, in San Francisco's tribute to Stephen Sondheim and with the Hillfest Orchestra in Peabody Massachusetts. Judy will be a freshman at Barnard College in New York this fall. She has appeared in The American Conservatory Theater's production of Shed a Little Light: The Music of James Taylor, and in A.C.T.'s A Christmas Carol. She was nominated for a 2006 MAC Award for New York Female Debut Performance, and received the Julie Wilson Award at the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention Opening Night Gala in New York City on October 29th, 2008.
