End of the Rainbow is partially funded by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts & Culture through Horton Plaza Theatres Foundation.

This savagely funny play 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 triumphed in London’s West End and on Broadway receiving 3 Tony nominations and 4 Olivier nominations, including Best Play.

It’s 1968, and Judy Garland, at 46, with new flame Mickey Deans at her side, prepares to make her comeback with a six-week booking at London’s Talk of the Town nightclub. End of the Rainbow is a powerful, and at times hilarious, exploration of the final days of this beloved and exploited star. Part drama and part concert, the production features Garland’s most memorable songs including “The Man That Got Away,” “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” “The Trolley Song” and, of course, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.”

Starring Award Winning Actress Eileen Bowman* as Judy Garland, Jeffrey Jones* as her fiancé Mickey Deans, Cris O’Bryon as her pianist Anthony and Marco Rios in multiple roles.
