It is winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to stardom as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, and, even though her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management and drug addiction, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.
Featuring some of her best-known songs and an extraordinary performance by Renee Zellwegger as the fading legend in the last painful year of her life, Judy is sure to satisfy die-hard Garland fans and introduce a new audience to this mistress of the belting torch song.

And the critics say…
“Judy … is happy to let [Renée] Zellweger take centre stage. Thank god, because it’s the performance of a lifetime.” Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
“Being back with Judy-even if it isn’t the “real” Judy- is like coming back home from a long, exhausting trip. It’s a reminder that there’s no place like home, and no one like Garland.” Asher Luberto, LA Weekly
“Renée Zellweger performs miracles playing Judy Garland: singing her heart out, baring her bruised soul and acting with a ferocity that ultimately rises to a state of grace.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
