Liza Liza Liza - Tabard Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
LIZA Liza Liza, a new play by Richard Harris, receives its world premiere at the Tabard Theatre, where it runs from September 4 to September 29, 2013.
We’re going to have some songs, some dance, some facts and, who knows, maybe some fiction…..Regrets is something I don’t do. I don’t see the point thinking about what I should have done, could have done, might have done. Liza Minnelli.
Liza Liza Liza turns back the years and peels away the veneer on one of Hollywood’s most compelling living icons – Liza Minnelli, whose professional and private lives have experienced dizzying highs and crashing lows, all ruthlessly captured and sold by the world’s media.
Playwright Richard Harris (Outside Edge, The Business of Murder) worked with Liza Minnelli in 1991 when she was cast in the film adaption of his award-winning play Stepping Out. In Liza Liza Liza, Harris unearths and examines the tremendous and tragic tale of Liza’s journey so far using interview and biographical quotes from Liza herself.
Harris said: “Celebrities come and go every hour. Liza’s story is different. It covers nearly every corner of the showbusiness world. Now that’s a challenge to achieve. Even for the biggest stars out there. And yet she’s still here. Entertaining the world – onstage and off. What’s not to love about her?”
Liza Liza Liza is produced by Colin Hilton for Pulling Focus at the Tabard Theatre. Full cast and creative team have yet to be announced.
