'End of the Rainbow' to close on Broadway
Wednesday 01 August 2012
It's the end of the Broadway rainbow for "'End of the Rainbow."
Producers said Tuesday the play about Judy Garland's last days will close Aug. 19, having played a total of 176 performances at the Belasco Theatre.
The show, which played in London before landing in New York, earned English star Tracie Bennett a 2012 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards as well as a Tony Award nomination.
Fans can take solace that "End of the Rainbow" will next be seen in Los Angeles from March 12 through April 21, 2013, as part of CTG/Ahmanson Theatre's 2012/2013 Season.
A national tour is being planned and a film adaptation, also starring Bennett, is currently in development. The actress also has a CD out, "Tracie Bennett Sings Judy."
