On stage 9 June Liza with a ‘T’ starring Tonya Koenderman
Tonya Koenderman is back in town with her one-woman hit show, Liza with a ‘T’, directed by Neil Lessick. It is a tribute to the great Liza Minnelli, and has been performed to sell-out houses and critical acclaim in Port Elizabeth, East London, Grahamstown, Durban, Cape Town, Namibia, Bloemfontein and Johannesburg.
The show tells the story of Minnelli’s life – her close relationship with her father, her struggle to conquer drug and alcohol abuse, her many relationships, and of the influence her mother Judy Garland had over her. But mainly the show pays tribute to the songs Minnelli made famous: ‘Cabaret’, ‘Mein Herr’, ‘Maybe this Time’, ‘New York, New York’, ‘All That Jazz’, and many more.
Hours of careful study of Liza Minnelli’s moves and music resulted in a show that has brought great success for Koenderman. Her impersonation has been so impressive that she was invited to star in the look-alike, sound-alike show, Stars in Your Eyes in 1996. This lead to her being the only local artist to perform in the international show, Beyond Belief which ran for 18 months at the Sun City Extravaganza.
What the critics say:
‘So powerfully pleasing is this petite performer’s voice, so sparkling her personality, so easy her rapport with the audience’ – Billy Suter, The Mercury
‘…a powerful voice, loads of charisma, and a personality that makes Oprah look retiring’ – Barbara Hollands, The Daily Dispatch
Liza with a ‘T’ will be on Casta Diva’ Vissi d’Arte Theatre, in Pretoria on 9 June. Tickets are R140. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org
