End of the Rainbow02—01—12
The name of this spectacular piece of theater is a play on the title of what was Judy Garland's most famous song, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, from "The Wizard of Oz." I will happily admit that I was one of the people in the audience who was on my feet applauding the minute the curtain came down on the final act when I saw it in London. And I wasn't alone--there was a standing ovation every night of its six-month run there! Tracie Bennett is divine in the lead role; it's as if Judy herself was on stage. Now that it's here on Broadway I'm planning to see it again--I'd call this the "don't miss" of a lifetime!
