“Sensational – in every sense of the word” – Ben Brantley, New York Times
With a six week booking at London’s Talk of the Town, it looks like Judy Garland is set firmly on the comeback trail. The failed marriages, the suicide attempts and the addictions are all behind her. At forty-six and with new flame Mickey Deans at her side, she seems determined to carry it off and recapture her magic. But lasting happiness always eludes some people, and there was never any answer to the question with which Judy ended every show: “If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why, can’t I?”
End of the Rainbow is a savagely funny musical drama featuring a glorious ensemble of Judy Garland hits and infused with the glamour and the melancholy of stardom.
