End of the Rainbow, starring Oliver Award winner and Tony Award nominee Tracie Bennett as late entertainer Judy Garland, opened on Broadway April 2, 2012, at the Belasco Theatre. In celebration of the production, Playbill.com remembers the late Garland with performances and more.
The following videos celebrate Garland later in her career; many, if not all of them, culled from her series "The Judy Garland Show," which put the icon in living rooms across America every Sunday night during the early 1960's.
Garland earned an Academy Award nomination for playing Esther Blodgett in "A Star Is Born," which introduced the song "The Man That Got Away."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
