Liza’s Back! ( is Bro­ken)

Where Brisbane - - What’s On -

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.

17–22 Jan­uary, Cre­morne Theatre, QPAC, cnr Grey and Mel­bourne Streets, South Bank. 136 246.
