DON'T MISS!: FLYING AWAY
This time it’s really the end for “End of the Rainbow.” The Broadway drama closes shop Sunday, which means you only have a few days to catch Tracie Bennett’s blistering performance as a late-in-life Judy Garland — boozed-up and doped-up, but still singing up a storm.
To tackle that demanding part, the British actress remained level-headed. “You take your wig off, and then you’re back to being yourself again,” she says. “You have to serve the piece, and to do that, you have to stay strong in yourself.”
At least she’ll have a breather before the show reopens on the West Coast in the spring, with hopes for a future movie version. As Bennett puts it, “It’s not over until the thin lady sings.” Through Sunday at the Belasco Theatre, 111 W. 44th St.; 212-239-6200.
