Play Explores Judy Garland’s Legacy


Judy Garland’s most famous role was at age 17, when she played Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” But her acting career included more than two dozen films. At age 39, she became the youngest and first female recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film.

Behind the scenes, the actress struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. The musical drama “End of the Rainbow” chronicles the time before her death at age 47, shifting between moments of onstage triumph and backstage tribulation.

See “End of the Rainbow” now through June 4 at St. Petersburg’s freeFall Theatre.
