I got a chance to see the End of the Rainbow playing at the Milwaukee Rep through February 9th. The story of Judy Garland's 1968 comeback in London. The musical takes a tragic and sometimes funny look at Judy's last 10 months of her life before it tragically ended at the age of 47. When I think of Judy Garland I think of watching the annual playing of The Wizard of Oz on TV watching with my family and didn't know too much about her life and battles. The small cast brings strong performances to the stage at the Rep driven by Hollis Resnik's portrait of Garland.
This is definitely a powerful show at the Milwaukee Rep.
Watch Judy in 1968 she died in 1969.
