By Popular Demand, the Broadway at Birdland concert series presented the return of Julie Halston to the stage. This special one-night-only event, entitled "Judge Julie Presiding" took place on February 3 at Birdland, located in the heart of Manhattan's Theater District. The sold-out house was left helpless with laughter, thanks to Ms. Halston's rants, raves and readings!
