End Of The Rainbow description
Olivier Award winning star of Hairspray Tracie Bennett returns to the West End Stage in Peter Quilter's new play based on the later life of Judy Garland. Directed by the multi celebrated award winning Terry Johnson, End Of The Rainbow received 5 star reviews and nightly standing ovations on its pre London run.
It's December 1968 and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback... again. In a London hotel suite with her young new fiance at her side, Garland battles with a tornado of drugs and alcohol as she undertakes an exhausting series of concerts at the Talk of the Town to try and reclaim her crown as the greatest talent of her generation. Despite a series of failed marriages and a wrecked Hollywood career, Judy remains a tough, compelling, remarkable woman always armed to the teeth with her legendary razor-sharp wit.
Featuring a breathtaking performance by Tracie Bennett the production features several of Garland's classic songs, including The Man That Got Away, Come Rain or Come Shine, The Trolley Song and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, with a live onstage band.
