Being Liza: Formation Festival

18:45, 28 - 30 Jun

‘Funny, aren’t they? Dreams. You work your whole life towards this goal, this ideal life and then god forbid you get there and then what? What do you possibly do then?’

Frances Edwards is Scotland’s premier Liza Minnelli tribute act. Her dad Pete is her demanding manager and co-star, blindly focussed on their ultimate success. Fusing classic Liza Minnelli songs such as ’New York, New York’ ‘The World Goes Round’ and ‘Cabaret’,  Being Liza is an original story about a girl discovering who she really is behind the mask of an icon.
