Come to the Cabaret, ‘Mein Herr’
Judy Garland and Edith Piaf, close contemporaries, both died at the age of 47, after years of struggle. Drugs played a part in both of their lives, though there was much more to it than that. Both were incredibly passionate and optimistic in their lives and in their music. And of course, they shared a stunning ability to touch audiences to the depths, and put over a song with heart-rending sincerity.
Edith had one child, a daughter, whom she lost to meningitis at the age of two. Judy had one child, also a daughter, who went on to emulate her mother in her own distinctive style: Liza Minelli. An eager and talented young singer/composer from Australia loved them both, and married Liza – Peter Allen.
‘Liza and Judy’ tells this moving and touching story through unforgettable songs, words and story. Like ‘Edith and Marlene’, it is a story of life triumphing over difficulty, joy over darkness, brought to life by the extraordinary talent of Galit Klas and narrator/pianist extraordinaire Alan Kogosowski.
Songs include: Smile, Where or When, The Man I Love, Nice Work if You Can Get it, Annie Get Your Gun, The Man That Got Away, Cry Me a River, Ring Them Bells, As Long as He Needs Me, Come to the Cabaret, Mein Herr, Money Money Money, Maybe This Time, And All That Jazz and New York, New York.
