Why go and see it?

“Christina Bianco has the vocal chops — and the star quality — to conjure exactly what made Minnelli the greatest live performer of my lifetime” (Mark Shenton)

Join vocal powerhouse and internationally acclaimed star, Christina Bianco as she and the 28-piece London Gay Big Band bring this unique concert event to life with a new pulse, while paying homage to the legendary Liza Minnelli! Award-winning choreographer David Allwood and his dance troupe reimagine Fosse's original work, echoing his iconic style with a fresh, modern flair. Special guest Sooz Kempner joins the show, bringing her inimitable style and sparkling vocals to the fore.

LIZA WITH A 'Z' - and more!

Songs include Ring Them Bells, Son of a Preacher Man, God Bless The Child, All That Jazz, Bye Bye Blackbird, New York, New York and selections from the musical Cabaret.

Half a century on from the release of the original album of that concert, Liza is back with us at the age of 26 in all her blazing glory
- Mark Shenton
