In End of the Rainbow, the acclaimed new play by Peter Quilter, two-time Olivier Award-winner Tracie Bennett stars as Judy Garland, leading a cast that features Michael Cumpsty, Tom Pelphrey and Jay Russell. Directed by Tony® Award winner Terry Johnson, End of the Rainbow began performances on Monday, March 19, 2012 and opened on Monday, April 2.
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.
