Ray Rackham’s extraordinary biographical musical about the life of iconic movie star and chanteuse Judy Garland comes to the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited run from 16 May 2017.
This highly-anticipated production sees the biographical musical about the life of iconic movie star Judy Garland back in town following a critically acclaimed Southwark Playhouse 2016 debut (original title, Through The Mill).
Using three ages of Judy Garland, Rackham shows that her life was more than heartbreak and self-destruction. The stories of Young Judy (an innocent girl filled with hope and excitement as she heads toward her life-changing performance in The Wizard of Oz), Palace Theatre Judy (a woman at the height of her performing powers in the midst of a passionate romance with Sidney Luft) and CBS Judy (an older and possibly wiser woman) demonstrate that no matter how hard we look for love in all the wrong places, the answer is ultimately inside ourselves.
The cast includes Helen Sheals (Last Tango In Halifax, Downton Abbey) as CBS Judy, Belinda Wollaston (Mamma Mia, Titanic) as Palace Judy and Lucy Penrose as Young Judy Garland. The memorable score which is brought to life by a live band, is a wonderful combination of Judy Garland standards interlinked with some of her lesser known numbers and includes The Trolley Song, The Man That Got Away and, of course, Over The Rainbow.
“Pierces the heart and raises the roof.” Times
“Rackham’s script has an overarching sense of hope and vaudevillian resilience… an unmissable production.” The Stage
“The show reminds us how, in the conflict between a merciless industry and the hunger for love and life, a star is inevitably torn.” Guardian
