West End and Broadway Leading Lady, Liz Robertson and her daughter Briony Deuchar put their relationship under the spotlight. From touring as Maria in The Sound of Music, when Briony was but a babe in arms right through to Hairspray when Mama was on stage and daughter was off. The night will include songs which evoke memories good and ‘not so good’ alongside songs we love to sing together.

Liz Robertson is one of the most popular British West End stars, equally at home here and in America.

Liz made her West End debut in A Little Night Music, followed by Side By Side By Sondheim and I Love My Wife.

She was then chosen by Cameron Mackintosh to star as Eliza Doolittle in his revival of the iconic musical My Fair Lady at the Adelphi Theatre. For this performance Liz received an Olivier nomination and an award from the Variety Club Of Great Britain. After a year in the West End she went on to star in The Mitford Girls at Chichester and the Globe Theatre followed by her one person show Just Liz at the Duke Of Yorks Theatre which was also televised.

A string of starring roles in great musicals followed: Maria in Sound Of Music, Anna in The King & I in America opposite Rudolf Nureyev for which she won several prestigious awards, Irene in Sherlock Holmes The Musical, Song & Dance at The Palace Theatre and Kern Goes To Hollywood at the Donmar and Broadway, where she also starred in Dance A Little Closer written by her husband Alan Jay Lerner.

She starred in the Music Man at the Open Air theatre Regent's Park, Beethoven's Tenth at Chichester, and Madame Giri in Phantom Of The Opera at Her Majesty's for two years and Velma in Hairspray at The Shaftesbury Theatre with Michael Ball.

Liz has made many concert and cabaret appearances both here and in America and performed at the Kennedy Centre Honours before President and Mrs Reagan and appeared in four Royal Variety Performances.
