Photo Flash: First Look at END OF THE RAINBOW, Opening Tonight at Porchlight Music Theatre

Porchlight Music Theatre presents the Chicago premiere of End of the Rainbow, tonight, November 4, through December 4, featuring music from the songbook of Judy Garland, written by Peter Quilter, starring Angela Ingersoll as "Judy Garland," direction by Porchlight Music Theatre Artistic Director Michael Weber, music direction by Jon Steinhagen, who also appears as "Anthony," at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

It's December 1968 and Judy Garland (Angela Ingersoll) is about to make her comeback... again. In a London hotel room, with both her new fiancé (Kyle Hatley) and her adoring accompanist (Jon Steinhagen), Garland struggles to get 'beyond the rainbow' with her signature cocktail of talent, tenacity and razor-sharp wit. Featuring many of Garland's most memorable songs, this savagely funny play with music offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed one of the most beloved figures in American popular culture.

End of the Rainbow also features Felipe Jorge as "The Radio Interviewer/The Porter/The ASM."

The End of the Rainbow production team includes: Christopher Rhoton, scenic designer; Bill Morey, costume designer; Shelley Strasser Holland, lighting designer; Ross Hoppe, projection designer; Mealah Heidenreich, properties designer; Robert Hornbostel, Sound Designer; Christopher Pazdernik, assistant director and Alex Rhyan, production manager.

Tickets for the regular run $45 - $51. Single tickets may be purchased at 773.327.5252 or at PorchlightMusicTheatre.org.
