A stage show charting the careers and relationship between Hollywood mother and daughter Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli is on a UK tour to Lancaster, Bolton, Lowestoft, Oldham, Barnstaple, Sale, Ulverston, Ilkley, Cheltenham, Milford Haven and Cardiff.
It’s created and written by West End performer Emma Dears who appears as Liza Minnelli, with Francis Goodhand as musical director.
Emma performs alongside Helen Sheals as Judy Garland. The production tells the turbulent tale of the stars against the backdrop of their infamous 1964 London Palladium concert.
The show features performances of iconic songs including "Cabaret", "Maybe This Time", "Over The Rainbow", "The Man That Got Away", "The Trolley Song" and "Together Wherever We Go".
Liverpool-born actress Emma self-penned the musical biopic. Helen has had roles in Coronation Street and Downton Abbey.
