One more….In downtown LA…

Enjoy “End of the Rainbow” at the Ahmanson. The West Coast premiere of “End of the Rainbow” is what Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls “. . . one of the most complete portraits of an artist I’ve ever seen . . .Watching Tracie Bennett’s electrifying interpretation of Judy Garland, you feel utterly alive. . . That’s what comes from witnessing acting that is this unconditionally committed, not to mention this sensational — in every sense of the word.”

Ongoing Anhmanson End of the RainbowThe setting of End of the Rainbow 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 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 features some of Garland’s most memorable songs, performed with the show-stopping gusto for which she will always be remembered.

Ticket prices range: $30 – $90
