Directed by the Tony® Award winning Terry Johnson, End of the Rainbow will begin performances on Monday, March 19, 2012 at the Belasco Theatre, with an opening night now set for Monday, April 2. Michael Cumpsty, Tom Pelphrey and Jay Russell will join two-time Oliver Award-winner Tracie Bennett in Peter Quilter's acclaimed play about the legendary Judy Garland. Production photos of the show have surfaced and BroadwayWorld brings you a look below!
Olivier® Award-winner Tracie Bennett received rave reviews and four Olivier® Award nominations in London. The setting is December 1968, and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback... again. In a London hotel room preparing for a series of concerts, with both her new young fiancé and her adoring accompanist, Garland struggles to get "beyond the rainbow" with her signature cocktail of talent, tenacity, and razor-sharp wit. This savagely funny drama offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed one of the most beloved figures in American popular culture. End of the Rainbow features some of Garland's most memorable songs, performed with the show-stopping gusto for which she will always be remembered.
Prior to its Broadway run, End of the Rainbow will be performed at Minneapolis's Guthrie Theater, with the full Broadway cast. Performances begin January 28 and will continue through March 11.
End of the Rainbow recently played a run in London's West End, produced by Lee Dean, Jenny Topper, Laurence Myers, Charles Diamond, Hilary Williams, David Bailey in association with Royal & Derngate, Northampton.
