“The classic number belongs squarely to Judy, as she's nothing less than sensational as she belts out ‘Get Happy.’” - Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy
June 29 & July 2 | Garland stars as the down-to-earth Jane, who lives in rural Connecticut, tending the family farm. When her actress sister Abigail returns home with her entire theater troupe, looking for a place to rehearse, Jane reluctantly lets them use their barn, butting heads with the troupe’s director, Joe Ross (Gene Kelly). Garland famously struggled with personal challenges and mental health during the production, her last one with MGM. SUMMER STOCK also marks her final pairing with Kelly, and includes the spectacular finale of “Get Happy”.
