“My history of my life is in my songs."
– Judy Garland
History Theatre kicks off its 34th season with the triumphant return of
Beyond the Rainbow: Garland at Carnegie Hall
Honoring the 50th anniversary of Judy Garland’s legendary concert!
SAINT PAUL, MN – History Theatre celebrates the iconic Judy Garland, with a show that uses her 1961 concert as a framework for exploring the music and the memories of her remarkable life. Actress Jody Briskey plays Garland as the performer on stage at Carnegie Hall, while Norah Long plays Judy in the memories that haunt and inspire the concert. The ensemble of Cathleen Fuller, Clark Cruikshank, and Peter Moore play the various significant characters in Judy’s life, from Garland’s childhood days in Minnesota, on to the studios at MGM, through marriages and divorces, and finally to Carnegie Hall. It’s a life packed with love, passion, courage, and resilience, featuring 24 of Garland’s greatest hits including “Get Happy,” “That’s Entertainment,” “The Trolley Song,” and of course, “Over the Rainbow.”
