This play also contains adult language and situations. This show is recommended for audiences age 14 and up,.
“Judy Garland returns to London in 1968 to prepare for a comeback concert at the Talk of the Town nightclub. In a London hotel room, with both her new, young fiancé, Mickey Deans and her devoted pianist, Anthony, Judy struggles to stay sober while balancing a cocktail of talent, chutzpah and caustic wit. As the stress builds and her demons reappear, Garland must decide for herself the best way to get through the ordeal. Featuring some of Judy’s most memorable songs, this viciously funny play, with music, offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed one of the most iconic performers of the 20th century.”
End of the Rainbow will be at the Cider Mill Stage and open on Saturday, September 7 and September 8 for six performances until September 15. All performances are at 7:30 p.m. To get tickets and find more information is online.
