The West End and Broadway smash hit!

Nominated for 3 Tony Awards and 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play.


London 1968 – and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback… again. Battling a tornado of drugs and alcohol, she undertakes an exhausting series of concerts at the Talk of the Town in order to re-claim her crown as the greatest talent of her generation.

After a series of failed marriages, Judy has her new young fiancé Mickey Deans by her side and her devoted pianist, Anthony.

Mixing drama, comedy, and electrifying concert sequences, End of the Rainbow has been greeted with standing ovations and 5 star reviews in 27 countries around the world.
