It is December 1968, and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback . . . again. In a London hotel room preparing for a series of concerts, with both her new, young fiancé and her adoring accompanist, Garland struggles to get "beyond the rainbow" with her signature cocktail of talent, tenacity and razor-sharp wit. This savagely funny drama, which also features some of Garland's most memorable songs, offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed one of the most beloved figures in American popular culture. Tracie Bennett received the Outer Critics Circle Award, as well as Tony, Drama Desk and Drama League nominations for her performance as Garland.

The production plays Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center, 135 N. Grand Ave. Downtown Los Angeles. End of the Rainbow continues through April 21, 2013. Tickets are available in person at the CTG box office, by phone (213) 972-4400 or online at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org.
