Judy Garland, her fifth husband and manager, Mickey Deans, and her longtime accompanist, Anthony, check into The Ritz Hotel in London. With her reputation in tatters, Judy prepares for a five-week run of shows at London’s Talk of the Town nightclub. But as opening night nears and the pressures of fame bear down harder than ever, her world slowly begins to fall apart.

Telling the story of Judy Garland’s fabled last days, Peter Quilter’s worldwide smash hit End of the Rainbow tears down the bright lights of Hollywood myth to reveal an enthralling tale of passion and manipulation.

Musical theatre icon Helen Dallimore (Wicked, Legally Blonde The Musical) plays the Hollywood legend in all her fragile and manic glory. This unmissable performance will bring the beauty, complexity and music of Garland to the stage.
