Playhouse on Park sets the stage for an intimate evening with singer/songwriter Jude Johnstone and friends on Nov. 24.
Unwind after your Thanksgiving celebrations with live music from American singer/songwriter Jude Johnstone at Playhouse on Park! With the release of her seventh solo album, “A Woman’s Work,” and after a run of West Coast shows with Bonnie Raitt, Jude is taking her solo show to the road.
