Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli are still the most loved mother and daughter team in showbiz. And now the two iconic performers are back together again thanks to Judy and Liza, the new musical experience touring the UK.

Set against a background of photographs and movie clips of the two women, this production features performances of all of your favourite hits including Cabaret, Maybe This Time and The Man That Got Away.

The audience are taken on an emotional rollercoaster as we discover the uncanny parallels between some of Judy and Liza's most iconic songs and their own personal lives, so often blighted with tragedy and loneliness.

This is a chance to hear the sensational stories of the lives of two of the world’s most legendary stars of stage and screen and to enjoy some of the most beautiful and popular songs of the last eighty years.

Quartet

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Mark Goucher and David Ian present
A Cheltenham Everyman Theatre Production

Paul Nicholas (The Real Marigold Hotel, Just Good Friends, EastEnders) Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, Oh What A Lovely War), Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, The Green Green Grass) and Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Drop the Dead Donkey) star in a brand-new revival of the bitter-sweet comedy Quartet.

Quartet is the charming tale of four ageing opera singers. Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a magnificent retirement home in Kent, where the rumour circling the halls is that the home will soon play host to a new resident, and word is it’s a star. When Jean arrives old rivalries resurface, secrets are revealed and chaos unfolds, but in true theatrical tradition – the show must go on. A celebration of the twilight years and the hilarity of growing old disgracefully!

Oscar-winning writer Sir Ronald Harwood has been nominated for several Tony and Olivier awards in a long and distinguished career. His play, The Dresser, recently completed a sold-out West End run. Produced by the team behind Jeeves & Wooster, The Miser, The Dresser and the smash-hit musical The Bodyguard.
