Liza’s Back! ( is Broken)
More Minnelli than Minnelli herself, direct from rehab with a live seven-piece band! There is no doubt about it. Liza Minnelli is a true Broadway legend. However, her appearances on the musical stage have been few and far between, and she’s only ever sung in a couple of true movie musicals. So what would happen if Liza decided to perform all the great Broadway roles she never got to play, in one special night? “Liza’s Back! (is Broken)” explores the parts that Minnelli should have done over the last forty years— those great leading lady roles from Mame to Grizabella to Norma Desmond and all others in between. Drag superstar, comedian and selfdescribed “mega Minnelli fan”, Trevor Ashley brings all of this and more to his hilarious one-(wo)man show, with all the glitz, glamour and production values worthy of Minnelli.
