Following a hugely successful run at Brighton Fringe Festival 2016, the award winning biographical musical rollercoaster “Somewhere Under The Rainbow - The Liza Minnelli Story” is set to make it’s Birmingham debut at the Old Joint Stock Theatre this Autumn.
West End performer Sharon Sexton, who has just finished appearing in the West End production of Billy Elliot the Musical, was awarded the Eva-Gore Booth award for Best Female Performer for her portrayal of the icon.
Written and directed by award-winning writer Cillian O’Donnachadha, this stunning one-woman show is set in the intimate surroundings of Liza’s dressing room, where the audience are invited to step beyond the footlights and decide for themselves, what is truth and what is illusion. Sexton delivers a compelling performance as Ms. Minnelli, sharing legendary stories and secrets from a fascinating career and belting her way through many of the signature tunes from the Minnelli songbook, as you have never heard them sung before, including Mein Herr, Some People and Maybe This Time.
To date the show has enjoyed a sold out performance in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, an Irish national tour, a run in London’s Fringe Circuit and a smash hit run at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
