where the writers are

With Oz the Great and Powerful holding on theatrically to the #1 spot for the second straight week, it’s obvious that America still has an enduring love-affair with L. Frank Baum’s timeless literary classic. Now, Southern California can enjoy the memory of its star: Judy Garland.

End of the Rainbow is captivating audiences through April 21st at the Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center. This sensational musical focuses on Judy Garland’s life in 1968 when she attempts to regain the fame and glory she once had. Set in London, Garland struggles to keep her stardom despite bad press, alcohol and drug addiction, and strains in her personal relationships.
