Liz Robertson to Bring SONGS FROM MY TRUNK to The Hippodrome, April 20
From The West End to Broadway Liz Robertson is revered as Theatre Royalty, a permanent fixture in the glittering world of Musical Leading Ladies. For many years audiences have been enthralled by her exquisite voice, her subtlety and taste. Having worked with every legendary composer from Andrew Lloyd Webber to Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein to, of course, her late husband Alan Jay Lerner, SONGS FROM MY TRUNK sees Liz in a whole new light!
"All little girls have dreams and mine was to dance like Fred Astaire and sing like Barbra Streisand. And therein lay my problem, I was a female possessing a vocal ability more in the white soprano range, from a young age I wanted to sound like the popstars of my era, or to be sexy, down and dirty like Ella, Nina and Cleo but there was nothing warm and smokey in my sound."
"As I have aged so has my voice, reaching notes lower and deeper than I had thought possible, so now is the time to start exploring those new notes with songs that I have always desired to sing but never could without sounding ridiculous. So here we are experimenting....at my age!" - Liz Robertson
In a show Directed by Sarah Ingram and Musically Directed by Chris Walker, Liz will share a collection of songs so eclectic and poignant that her stalwart fans will be as thrilled as the new ones each performance continues to bring.
"I am so excited for audiences to hear and see this side of Liz, to all who know her it is universally acknowledged she is one of the nicest Ladies in Showbusiness. This is our third Cabaret collaboration and I wholeheartedly concur. However devising this show with her, I can also add, that this Lady can definitely get down!" - Sarah Ingram
