Over the rainbow - The life and times of Judy Garland
Over the rainbow tells the story of Judy Garland's fall from grace. The year is 1968. Garland's demise begins as her finances begin to crumble and her celebrity which once shone brightly continues to fade and the press who have followed her every career move have savagely turned on the once darling of their trade.
End of the Rainbow paints a warts and all picture that details the life and times of a much loved but tortured musical icon. This must see production follows Judy Garland's struggle to stay in the spotlight that once paved her way to fame and fortune. The turbulent and strained relationships with men and her addiction to which would ultimately take her life.
Christen O'Leary returns to the stage to play Judy Garland, taking the audience on a journey through the darker and destructive side of the pressures worldwide fame. This extraordinary production is thrilling, moving and tragic. The production features a live 6 piece band and 12 of Garland's most memorable songs such as - The Man That Got Away, Come Rain Come Shine, The Trolley Song and the iconic Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
I took my mum to see this show today and we were expecting something amazing, after all, it is a show about Judy Garland right! Wow...were we disappointed, it was like a bad comedy about the tragic life of an amazing woman which was extremely overacted. There was no where near enough singing considering the show was based on the life of a singer, apparently Christen O'Leary sang 11 songs? The best part of the show and the only moment for me was the last song, "Over the Rainbow". Not worth the money we paid.
