Celebrating the songs of the legendary Barbra Streisand, singer Liza Pulman returns to London following sell-out shows and rave reviews, as part of her UK tour.
Best known as one third of the satirical comedy trio Fascinating Aida, Pulman is set to delight audiences at Cadogan Hall on 18 October and Wiltons Music Hall on 23 November with her show, Liza Sings Streisand, accompanied by her six-piece band, The Stardust Ensemble.
The London concerts follow the launch of her double A-side single, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers/The Way We Were, featuring Liza and the Brighouse & Rastrick Band.
Describing Streisand as “an inspiration”, Pulman will perform such classic tracks as Evergreen, The Way We Were, Funny Girl and Don’t Rain On My Parade.
“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,” says Pulman of the great musical icon, who is the best-selling female recording artist in history.
Like Streisand, her foray into a career in showbusiness started young. Her mother is actress Barbara Young (Coronation Street, Last of the Summer Wine), while her father Jack Pulman was an award-winning screenwriter behind the critically-acclaimed BBC drama, I Claudius.
“There was a brief period where I fancied being a vet, but the performing gene was always going to get me in the end,” she quips.
From an early age, she loved singing and trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, before later joining Glyndebourne Opera. She also appeared in Adrian Noble’s 2002 award-winning production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the UK tour of Doctor Doolittle.
Now directing her energy into her new show, Pulman says she is keen to bring the very best of Barbra to her audience – and with a twist.
“I love creating new arrangements of songs people know really well and also introducing the audience to songs they might not know. Working with my band to bring together the best of Barbra Streisand’s songs has been a real treat and we can’t wait to share this with you!”
Liza performs on Wednesday, 18 October at Cadogan Hall, Sloane Terrace, Belgravia and on Thursday, 23 November at Wiltons Music Hall, Graces Alley, Whitechapel. Details: lizapulman.com
