Trevor Ashley returns to W/E as Liza Minnelli

Theatre preview

FOLLOWING a triumphant West End debut earlier this year, Australian star Trevor Ashley returns to the capital – to the Lyric Theatre – with his critically acclaimed show LIZA (on an E).

The show, in which Ashley showcases the extraordinary talents of the iconic Liza Minnelli, is part of a UK tour and will be performed at the Lyric for one night only, Monday, October 7, 2013.

From Liza’s marriage to Broadway song-and-dance legend Peter Allen to her pill popping, and revealing insights into her crazy showbiz family, Ashley’s ‘Liza’ dishes the dirt on her extraordinary life.

Accompanied by a live onstage band, Ashley performs all Liza’s greatest hits, including Cabaret, Maybe This Time and New York New York, together with several ‘stunning’, hilarious parody songs.

Controversial, wickedly funny yet also touchingly affectionate, LIZA (on an E) is described as a must see evening that will have you laughing, crying and screaming for more, as the supremely talented Ashley channels Liza, plus special appearances by her mother, the legendary Judy Garland.

Written by Trevor Ashley and Dean Bryant, LIZA (on an E) is also directed by Bryant (Associate Director of Priscilla Queen of the Desert) and has musical direction by James Simpson. Guest artist is Christopher Mitchell.

Tickets: £15 – £25 – available from the box office on 0844 412 4661.

Time: 8pm.

The tour will also visit Brighton (September 30), Manchester (October 1 and 2) and Liverpool (October 5).

Premium seats are available – prices on request from the venues.
