A hit in the West End and on Broadway, End of the Rainbow will return in 2016 as part of a major new UK tour, starring Lisa Maxwell as Judy Garland.
It's 1968 and Judy Garland, a once-glittering star, is in London to make her explosive comeback. But off stage, holed up in her hotel room, Judy is battling with her young new fiance?, her devoted accompanist, and her destructive addictions. Will she be able to conquer her demons and reclaim her crown as one of history's great musical icons? Featuring Garland?s most memorable songs The Man That Got Away, Come Rain Or Come Shine,The Trolley Song and of course Somewhere Over The Rainbow, End of the Rainbow is a fiercely funny and emotionally charged musical play filled with Garland's legendary tenacity, razor-sharp wit and once-in-a-generation voice.
