Production à la création:

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.


The show premièred in August 2005 at the Sydney Opera House in Australia starring Caroline O’Connor as Garland. It ran at the Theatre Royal, Sydney in May 2006, again with O'Connor. It also played at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

It was then performed from February 5–20, 2010 at Northampton's Royal & Derngate as part of their Addicted To You season. This production was directed by Terry Johnson and starred Tracie Bennett as Judy Garland, with Hilton McRae as Anthony and Stephen Hagan as Mickey Deans. End of the Rainbow ran in the West End from 16 November 2010 to 21 May 2011 at Trafalgar Studios, starring Tracie Bennett. The West End production received nominations for four Olivier Awards, including Best Actress for Bennett and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for McRae. The show then toured in the UK, starting in Northampton, from 25 August to 3 September 2011.

End of the Rainbow made its American premiere at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, running from January 28 to March 11, 2012. Directed by Terry Johnson, Tracie Bennett repeated her role as Garland.

Presse : "Melancholy saga ...For all the skill of the acting and the smoothness of Terry Johnson's production, it's hard to love a play that invites us to wallow in Garland's tragic decline without offering much in the way of enlightenment." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"This is not so much a musical as a play with a lot of music woven into it...[Tracie] Bennett is superb." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"Tracie Bennett gives a great performance as Garland...Only those who hope for anything more than the schmaltz of suffering will be disappointed." Ian Shuttleworth for The Financial Times

"Terry Johnson’s production is practically flawless. " Paul Vale for The Stage

"There are moments in the theatre when you lean forward in your seat with shivers racing down the spine, and realise there is nowhere on God’s earth you’d rather be. End of the Rainbow is one such occasion, offering one of the greatest musical theatre performances I have ever witnessed...At once fragile and funny, tragic and tough, and rising to superb musical heights, Bennett’s performance is as dazzling as it is unforgettable." Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
