Electrifying, intense and real this production will leave you breathless. “End of the Rainbow” is a true account of the twilight of an all too mortal goddess on the eve of her destruction and is revealing in a way seldom found in the tabloids. ┬áSee hat perilous bipolar energy that so often animates great performers. Touch this woman at your own risk. She burns…every chapter of Garland’s history is alive; she is foul mouthed, flirtatious, erotic, childlike, unedited, manipulative and supremely self conscious as she makes love and war with her keepers. Judy has a strong sense of herself as a human tragedy on a world stage, but her sense of humour, of the absurdity of it all is just as sharp and appallingly funny…and then she sings! And all those disparate elements coalesce into a coherent riveting whole…

A don’t miss theatre event!
