by -

A new play about Liza Minnelli will have its world premiere at the Tabard Theatre in west London this September.

Liza Liza Liza is written by Stepping Out playwright Richard Harris and will run from September 4 to 29. Press night will be on September 6.

The play is directed by Kenn Oldfield, although the full cast and creative team have yet to be announced.

Harris, who worked with Minnelli in 1991 when she was cast in the film adaptation of Stepping Out, said: “Celebrities come and go every hour. Liza’s story is different. It covers nearly every corner of the showbusiness world.”

In the new play he will use quotes he has taken from interviews with the performer.

The play is produced by Colin Hilton for Pulling Focus.
