Ahmanson Theatre

Tracie Bennett! The toast of London, New York. Now at the Ahmanson.

Forget your troubles, come on get happy!

It’s December 1968, and Judy Garland—in a London hotel room with both her new young fiancé and adoring accompanist—is preparing to make her comeback...again.

In one of the most celebrated performances on both the London and Broadway stage, Tony Award® nominee Tracie Bennett is an irresistible force embodying Garland's signature cocktail of talent, tenacity, and razor-sharp wit in this savagely funny backstage drama.

When Bennett and the band rip into 12 of Judy's most memorable show-stoppers (including “Over the Rainbow,” “The Trolley Song,” and “The Man That Got Away”), you will know that you are witnessing what The New York Times calls “an electrifying interpretation of Judy Garland.”

Bennett’s remarkable performance has made her “the toast of Broadway” (New York Post) and has garnered her the 2012 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actress in a Play, a 2012 Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut Performance, along with Tony, Drama Desk, and Drama League Award nominations.

Top 10 of the Year

Tracie Bennett’s interpretation of Garland is so intense and unnerving that it’s impossible to look away.

Tracie Bennett becomes Judy Garland as a dynamo at rainbow’s end

Tracie Bennett’s magnetic, Tony-nominated performance has already made her the toast of London and New York. Los Angeles will no doubt raise a glass in her honor. To say that I was blown away by her virtuoso turn when I saw End of the Rainbow in New York last spring in what was the West End veteran's Broadway debut is an understatement.
