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.

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

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.

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!!

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.

Very pleased with our Goldstar seats.

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

Tracie Bennett is beyond amazing - astounding would be close - which is both good and bad news. Ms. Bennett is so intent on portraying Judy Garland's emotional excesses that the portrayal too often becomes a caricature rather than a depiction. ...continued

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

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

Excellent!! Great performances (and of course singing) by all. Tracie Bennett is great. See the L.A. Times review (3/17/13). Our seats in the Mezzanine were center, row D. Great seats. I always get great seats through Goldstar. The price...continued

Just know that the show is called End of the Rainbow - not Over the Rainbow. As great as Tracie Bennett was, it was like watching a train wreck. Incredibly sad.
I also thought that the actor who played her fiance was horrible and really brought...continued
