Put on your red sparkly shoes, click them together three times, and join TheatreZone for Judy & Liza at the Palladium. Celebrate the music that brought the audience to their feet in November of 1964 when Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli teamed up for an unforgettable concert at London’s famed Palladium Theatre. Maestro Michael Berkowitz, who toured with Liza, will be conducting from the drums. Professional actresses Joan Ellison and Carolann Sanita, who played Judy and Liza, respectively, in The Boy From Oz at TheatreZone, will belt out the songs of those original dynamic divas, including “Once In A Lifetime,” “Just In Time,” “Gypsy In My Soul,” “Cabaret,” “New York, New York,” and, of course, “Over The Rainbow.”
Joan Ellison has been praised for her "vocal prowess...[and] organic grasp of the classic songs" by Michael Feinstein, who recently asked her to serve as Editor of the Judy Garland Carnegie Hall Concert Restoration Project for the Judy Garland Heirs Trust. Ellison made her Cleveland Pops debut in 2005 and has since sung more than 35 concerts with orchestras across the country, as well as playing classic leading-lady roles in regional theatre.
Carolann M. Sanita toured as Marian in the first national tour of The Music Man and internationally as Maria in the European and Asian tours of West Side Story. She was back-up to Linda Eder at the Palace Theatre on Broadway and has performed in numerous regional theatre productions.
Michael Berkowitz was the Music Director/Conductor/Drummer for Liza Minnelli, working with her on the Tony Award-winning, "Liza's At The Palace" on Broadway and in concerts around the world. He is now in his 15th year as the Principal Pops Conductor of the Santa Rosa Symphony in Santa Rosa, CA.
