Through the Mill, a new play by Ray Rackham chronicling the life of Judy Garland, will get its world premiere in a three-week season at the London Theatre Workshop from Tuesday 1st December to Saturday 19th December 2015.
Taking place during three significant and distinct moments in Judy Garland’s career, Through the Mill charts her rise from teenager to MGM movie star, from ‘has-been’ to concert hall darling, and her short-lived career as a television personality.
On film, on stage or in people’s living rooms every Sunday evening, Garland was, and continues to be, one of the biggest stars of Hollywood’s golden age. As conflicted as she was celebrated, Through the Mill gives the audience an opportunity to go beyond the rainbow and witness the life of a woman destined for greatness, one who is as loved today as she was when she made her way along that yellow brick road.
Featuring a hit list of Garland greatest standards performed live by a cast of 12, Through the Mill will delight Garland aficionados and audiences new to her extensive catalogue of work alike. Cast to be announced.
Through the Mill is directed by Max Reynolds (Ushers: The Front of House Musical at the Arts Theatre) and is produced by Skye Crawford for London Theatre Workshop, whose recent productions include the critically acclaimed, sell-out musicals Parade and Apartment 40C.
