Bennett did shine - in acting, singing and movement. The play, however, was painfully commonplace (except for the name dropping) to anyone who has spent time being or near any manipulative addict. We left at the interval.

I would see this show again and again. One of the best performances I've ever been to.

One of the most amazing shows I have ever seen and I attend theatre almost every week. Tracie Bennett becomes Judy. Her body and the way she carries herself embodies Judy Garland. It is an exhausting performance and I wonder how she does it,...continued

By the time 2013 comes to a close, I'd be surprised if End of the Rainbow wasn't one of the best shows I've seen all year, if not THE best. It was spectacular. Tracie Bennett was remarkable as the larger-than-life Judy Garland. Simply remarkable....continued

The show was fantastic. What a dynamo performer!! However, the tickets were not so great. We sat on the extreme end of the row. Luckily, it was not crowded so we moved a few rows back to sit towards center.

I enjoyed this production immensely! The singing and acting by Tracie Bennett was incredible, and she sounded almost exactly like Judy Garland. The band and music were fabulous also! The story itself was a bit lacking, and the actor who played...continued

Excellent performances, especially Tracie Bennett (of course) but all performances were excellent. The music was great and the
book was more revealing and funnier than I expected.

Brilliant show, cleverly staged! But the big news is that Tracie Bennett turns in a performance for the ages! She absolutely channels Judy Garland! She, like Judy, is a force to be reckoned with! See this show!!

Portraying Judy Garland at the end of her career, Tracie Bennett does a star turn in which she does not so much imitate as inhabit the character of Judy. She has it all down perfectly; the voice, the patterns of speech, the movements. I was...continued

Second viewing. First was opening night, so I was prepared for
a slight letdown. No way. Energy level was just as high, and
Ms. Bennett's performance was brilliant. Did I like it? I'm
about to make reservations for a third time!

Fantastic acting, but very demeaning and depressing. Why watch a two hour long delirium tremens? I was ashamed for the memory of Judy Garland

The actors do their best to bring some humanity to a tawdry mess of a play and don't quite make it. See it if you are a diehard Judy fan but if you worship her just stay home and watch A Star is Born.

Excellent show! Shows her last days in London. A hint on parking: Do arrive early as the parking garage gets loaded from top down meaning if you are running close to show time for your arrival, you will be on one of the very low floors and have...continued

Judy lives! Truly, perhaps the best, most vivid capture of Ms. Garland. The inner torture, the immense talent: all here. Wonderful evening.

Went into this with little expectations, if anything, I was expecting camp. It was not camp. A beautifully written homage to an amazingly talented, tragic, icon. Bennett was robbed when she didn't win the Tony for this performance. The entire...continued

Great show and great seats. Tracie Bennett really knocks it out of the park! She never stops moving and emoting to make the sad manic end of Garlands career come to life right before us. A show not to be missed
