About the showAfter a glittering tour that packed out theatres nationwide and a run at London's The Other Palace, Liza Pulman Sings Streisand makes itself at home at the Lyric Theatre for a limited season. This five-star evening of musical delights combines humour and storytelling - a homage to the life and legend of songstress Barbra Streisand.
There aren't many on this Earth who are unfamiliar with Barbra Streisand. The American singer/songwriter/filmmaker/actress has been decorated with an array of prestigious awards over the course of a six-decade career. Ten Grammy Awards and a Special Tony Award are included in that count. Among the best-selling recording artists alive with a grand total of 150 million singles and albums sold globally, she has also starred in iconic films such as Funny Girl, Yentl and Hello, Dolly!
Liza Pulman is a critically acclaimed comedienne and singer as well as a key member of Olivier award-nominated cabaret group Fascinating Aïda. Her theatre credits span roles in Chichester Festival Theatre's A Christmas Carol and London Palladium's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. She's no stranger to TV either, having most recently appeared in the BBC's Midsomer Murders.
Pulman is backed by a talented band who bring Streisand’s beloved songbook to life with aplomb. Together, they bring about the story of Streisand’s exceptional life and immortal music. Expect to hear hits like New York State of Mind, Don’t Rain on My Parade, The Way We Were, You Don’t Bring Flowers and many more.
Musical direction comes from Joseph Atkins, a composer, arranger and musical director whose previous credits include Josephine and I at Bush Theatre and Wedding Singer at Manchester's Lowry Theatre.
Liza Pulman Sings Streisand has earned sweeping critical praise and five-star reviews. Her heart-gladdening show plays a very limited run between March and April 2019.
