Olivier award-winning Tracie Bennett has taken the West End by storm as Judy Garland in Peter Quilter’s End Of The Rainbow.
London, December 1968, and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback... again. Determined to reclaim her crown as the greatest talent of her generation, she battles with a tornado of drugs and alcohol and a gruelling schedule of exhausting concerts at The Talk Of The Town.
Despite a series of failed marriages, Judy has her latest and youngest husband-to-be by her side, a man as determined as she that, at any cost, these concerts will mark the revival of her battered career.
Tracie Bennett's remarkable portrayal of this tough, talented, compelling woman has been rewarded with standing ovations.
This extraordinary production - thrilling, hilarious, moving and tragic - is directed by Tony and Olivier-award winner Terry Johnson and features a six piece onstage band and includes Garland’s most memorable songs - The Man That Got Away, Come Rain Or Come Shine, The Trolley Song and -of course - Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
