PERFORMANCES APRIL 30 – MAY 16, 2010
Triple threat Broadway actor and musician Tom Judson is debuting his auto-biographical show Canned Ham in Los Angeles on April 30th. Canned Ham documents his strange trajectory from Off-Off Broadway composer and performance artist to Broadway actor to, of all things, the porn super-star Gus Mattox!
The show, playing at The Cavern Club April 30th through May 16th, is an insider ‘show-biz musical’ that recounts the true life adventures Judson, an established actor off and on Broadway, who, as Mattox, became the oldest recipient of the GayVN ‘Performer of the Year’ Awards, the porn industry’s Oscar!. Tom’s theater career was thriving, and he was composing music for films and television (including Metropolitan, MTV and even Sesame Street) when he made an unexpected splash in the porn world as Mattox.
In Canned Ham Tom recalls working with show business greats Rob Marshall (director of Chicago), Ann Magnuson, Teri Hatcher, and many others. In this moving and hilarious show, Judson accompanies himself on the accordion while revealing what it’s really like on the set of a porn movie (and explaining that being a male escort can have some surprisingly touching moments).
Canned Ham runs Friday – Sunday April 30 – May 16th. Tickets are $20 in advance/$25 at the door and are available online through Brown Paper Tickets at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/100513
