Canned Ham: Live From NYC









Very few of us would have the courage to a) write an intensely personal memoir revealing our lives, b) perform it on stage to a live audience, and c) talk about sex in front of our parents.
Tom Judson did all three last night at NYC's Dixon Place, with style, wit, and an accordion. The show, which was just a glimmer of an idea earlier this year, became a reality to a packed house of Tom's family and friends. Afterwards, we gathered at the Remedy Diner to recap the highlights of his performance. Producer Robbi Kearns shared with us his hopes to raise enough capital in order to kickstart a NYC run of the show this coming November before Tom hits the road in his camper for a national tour. If the life lessons of Tom's show hold true, anything is possible. For more on Tom, check out Wickham Boyle's article in Gay City News.
