Beyond the Rainbow - 1978 - West End

Based on the novel After Me, the Deluge by David Forrest

History Theatre celebrates the iconic Judy Garland, with a show that uses her 1961 concert as a framework for exploring the music and the memories of her remarkable life.



The ensemble of Cathleen Fuller, Clark Cruikshank, and Peter Moore play the various significant characters in Judy's life, from Garland's childhood days in Minnesota, on to the studios at MGM, through marriages and divorces, and finally to Carnegie Hall. It's a life packed with love, passion, courage, and resilience, featuring 24 of Garland's greatest hits including "Get Happy," "That's Entertainment," "The Trolley Song," and of course, "Over the Rainbow."
