"One of the GREATEST MUSICAL PERFORMANCES I have ever witnessed. – Daily Telegraph"
Celebrated in London’s West End, Peter Quilter’s acclaimed musical drama about the last days of Judy Garland’s life comes to New York on Broadway. End of the Rainbow follows Judy Garland during her run of private shows at the famed cabaret restaurant, The Talk of the Town. Accompanied by her fiancé Mickey Deans and long-time friend Anthony, she struggles to reclaim her fame and public option because of a streak of bad press and divorces. The play features Judy Garland’s sharp wit and humorous 1960’s dialog. Along with all her most revered songs like “The Trolley Song”, “The Man that Got Away”, and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, the comeback Judy Garland was hoping for all those years ago finally came and it’s on Broadway.
If it’s not for the classic Judy Garland melodies performed by Oliver Award winner Tracie Bennett, then it could be the honest insight into the frailties of an American star during the end of her life. Bennett’s portrayal of The Wizard of Oz star is electrifying from her signature sharp wit to her more personal vices and insecurities. With Tony Award winner Terry Johnson (La Cage aux Folles) directing and a six-piece onstage band supporting Bennett’s one of kind performance, End of the Rainbow is an inside look at the journey of an American icon and her beloved music that captured the heart of the world.
