NEW YORK (AP) - A drama about the last months of Judy Garland’s life is coming to Broadway this spring.

Peter Quilter’s “End of the Rainbow” is set to begin performances March 19 at a theater to be announced.

Tracie Bennett, a two-time Olivier Award winner who originated the role of Garland in London, will reprise her role on Broadway.

Set in London in 1968, the play follows the drama of Garland’s final performances in London and her controversial life off stage. It also includes several of Garland’s signature songs, including “Over the Rainbow.”

The show will make its American premiere in January at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis as a tuneup for Broadway.
