What better way to celebrate Liza Minnelliís birthday on the 12 March, then to bring a
Liza Minelli Tribute show to Durban.
Tonya Koenderman is back in town with her one woman hit show, "Liza with a "T".
It is a tribute to the great Liza Minnelli and has been performed to sell out houses and critical acclaim in Port Elizabeth, Grahamstown, Durban, Cape Town, Namibia, Bloemfontein and Johannesburg.
The show tells the story of Liza's life - her close relationship with her father, her struggle to conquer drug and alcohol abuse, her many relationships, and of the influence her mother Judy Garland had over her. But mainly the show pays tribute to the songs Liza made famous: "Cabaret", "Mein Herr", "Maybe this Time", "Money Money", "New York, New York", and many more.
Hours of careful study of Liza Minnelli's moves and music resulted in a show that has brought great success for Tonya. Her impersonation has been so impressive that she was invited to star in the look-alike, sound-alike show, "Stars in Your Eyes" in 1996. This was such a success that she became the only local artist to perform in the international show, "Beyond Belief" which ran for 18 months at the Sun City Extravaganza.
