Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to
perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to
global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic
intensity has only grown.
As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and
reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even
her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with
Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working
for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to
Hollywood, and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Featuring some
of her best-known songs, including the timeless classic ‘Over the Rainbow’, Judy
celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s
greatest entertainer”.

The tension [Renée Zellweger] generates between Garland's charisma as a performer and her aching need and vulnerability as a person is what ultimately has us hanging on her every phrase.
