Description

A new play with music by Rachel Flynn. Being Liza is an original story about a girl in a pivotal transition of her life, discovering who she really is behind the mask of an icon. Frances Edwards is Scotland's premiere Liza Minnelli tribute act. Her dad Pete is her demanding manager and co-star, blindly focused on their ultimate success. Fusing classic Liza Minnelli songs such as New York, New York and Cabaret. 'An experience you won't forget... a stunning and beautifully judged comedy drama... a smart and sensitive study of a young woman on the cusp' ***** (ScotsGay.co.uk).

What a singer. Very enjoyable. Being in the church gave it a bit of magic. Superb Fringe debut.

Fantastic Amazing Mesmerising

From start to finish you are drawn in to the story by the amazing script and great acting of the performers.
Her singing is beautiful.
You will be speaking about this play long after you leave.
Seriously don't miss it.
We're going back on the 20th to see it again.

Saw this show yesterday and Rachel Flynn is a powerhouse performer! When she opens her mouth to sing, it’s as if Liza is in the room! Stunning!

Being Liza is a remarkably touching story, where you can feel the essence of the writer. It is less a tribute for Minnelli herself as it is for our parents, our families and ourselves. A tale of stepping out into the world singing, not decking yourself out with sequins and wigs – but as you. Whoever you may be.
