Julie To Philly

The great Julie Andrews will come to Macy's in Center City Philly on Saturday (4/5) to promote her new book, titled Home: A Memoir of My Early Years, and to receive a musical tribute from the Philadelphia Boys Choir and Choral and Peter Richard Conte at the Wanamaker Organ in Macy's Grand Court.
Is there a greater Broadway star that Julie Andrews? Is there a classier star anywhere? Has any other entertainer given more joy to more people in movies, theatre, on recordings and in live performances? If you can name one, please let me know.
We last saw Julie on Broadway when she starred in Victor Victoria and she was wonderful, as always. She is a pro who understands that she always owes the audience her very best and she always delivers. But beyond all that, she's a gracious person who proves that you can be a truly Big Star and still be kind, still care about others and still know who you are and from whence you came.
Julie's memoir recreates her years before the movies, artfully revealing the story of her childhood and upbringing.
The concert salute begins at 11:30 AM and then Andrews signs her book beginning at noon. You must buy the book in advance and only the first 150 purchasers will have their copies signed by Andrews. So, hurry on over to Macy's!
