End of the Rainbow is on tour and hits the Norwich Theatre Royal in Norwich, East.Ended 10 Sep 2011.
Directed by the 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 room with her young new fiancé 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.
With a breathtaking performance by Tracie Bennett, supported by a six piece onstage band, the production features Garland’s most memorable songs including The Man That Got Away, Come Rain Or Come Shine, The Trolley Song, and of course Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
