Break out your favorite red sequined suit! Following his West End debut earlier this year at the Vaudeville Theatre, Australian stage star Trevor Ashley is bringing his solo show Liza (On an E) to London for a one-night return at the Lyric Theatre on October 7 before heading off on a short U.K. tour. Directed and co-written by Dean Bryant, Liza (On an E) will play Brighton's Theatre Royal on September 30, Manchester's Dancehouse on October 1 and the Liverpool Room at the Echo Arena on October 5.
Liza (On an E) tells and parodies the story of Liza Minnelli’s extraordinary life, from her marriage to Peter Allen to her notorious pill-popping to her crazy showbiz family. Accompanied by a live onstage band, Ashley channels Liza (and her alter egos), with guest appearances by her mother, Judy Garland. Featuring musical direction by James Simpson and guest artist Christopher Mitchell, Ashley performs all of Minnelli's greatest hits, including "Cabaret," "Maybe this Time" and "New York, New York," together with several satirical numbers.
Ashley is a well-known star in Australia, having created the role of Miss Understanding in the original Australian cast of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. He also appeared in Jerry Springer: The Opera, Hairspray and The Producers.
