Performance of "Canned Ham" Benefits the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk

Join us on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 8:00 pm at the Cunneen Hackett Arts Center in Poughkeepsie for a special performance of the one-man show “Canned Ham!”
Tom Judson
Canned Ham is an insider ’show-biz musical’ that recounts the true life adventures of Tom Judson, and established actor off and on Broadway. 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 adult movies as “Guy Mattox.” To date he is still the oldest recipient of the GayVN ‘Performer of the Year’ Award!

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…). Warning for those faint of heart; the show is R-rated and contains graphic language and adult themes, but above all, Canned Ham is a comedy.

You can purchase your tickets online at
for the Friday, October 16th performance of Canned Ham for just $15 per person. Not only will you enjoy a show by a talented Broadway performer, you’ll also be supporting the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk on Saturday, October 17th, as a portion of the proceeds will benefit ARCS.
