Rizzo as Garland?

Adrienne Barbeau, the actress known for originating the role of Rizzo in Grease, among other things, is portraying Judy Garland in a new fictional show about backstage at Judy Garland's last performance before her death in 1969. The show sounds intriguing.

And Ms. Barbeau, still a commanding physical presence at 60, acknowledges as
much. "It's the biggest acting challenge I've been offered," she said in an
interview before a recent rehearsal for "The Property Known as Garland," in
previews at the Actors' Playhouse in Greenwich Village and opening on Thursday.
