End of the rainbow
Friday, January 7th, 2011
Earlier this week, Jasper became yet another person to be blown away by Peter Quilter’s acclaimed musical: End Of The Rainbow. Captivated from beginning to end, Jasper conceded it was one of the best things he’d ever seen – a sentiment that has been echoed by both critics and the public alike.
Directed by Terry Johnson, End Of The Rainbow follows Judy Garland’s final days as she embarks on the last of her comebacks in 1968. The Olivier-award winning actress Tracie Bennett is utterly compelling as an ailing Garland and her vocal talent has stunned audiences at London’s Trafalgar Studios. At once highly emotive and blackly comic, End Of The Rainbow pays fitting tribute to the legendary Judy Garland and, whether a fan of the late actress or not, is a definitely a show not to be missed.
End Of The Rainbow is showing at Trafalgar Studios, London, SW1A 2DY until April 16th 2011.
