Her latest solo show will feature all of Streisand’s greatest hits including Evergreen to The Way We Were as well as the much loved and recognised Funny Girl numbers including Don’t Rain On My Parade. The show features brand new arrangements of these classic songs and more alongside renowned musical director and Liza’s long-time collaborator Joseph Atkins.
Talking about the show, Liza said: “Barbra Streisand is a legend, her talent across singing, directing and screenwriting, and her rhythm as a natural comedian have all inspired me both on and off stage. I absolutely love putting the show programmes together. I love creating new arrangements of songs that people know really well and also introducing the audience to songs they might not already know.”
