Old Town Theatre will present a tribute to Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland at the New Community Theatre, 207 W. Second Ave., at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24-25.
Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli, the most famous mother and daughter entertainers the world of show business has ever seen, performed only just a few times together. In 1963, Garland introduced to the world her daughter, Liza, on the Judy Garland TV show and in 1964 they had a concert at the Palladium in London. The world, unfortunately, never saw them perform together again as Garland passed away before Minnelli was successfully recognized as her mother’s equal.
“Judy & Liza, Together Again” is a tribute show with a concept that fulfills many people’s desire, which is to see the experienced Minnelli at her peak, back together with her proud mother. Denise Rose and Suzanne Goulet have the looks, the voices and the dancing ability to make this fantasy come true. They also have the great energy that the originals always brought on stage and most importantly, they transmit the love they had for each other.
“Judy” and “Liza” will perform duets, dance to old style choreography and have moving dialogues. They will perform songs such as “Get Happy”, “Swanee”, “Bye Bye Blackbird”, and “City Lights”.
