Daughter of Judy Garland and half-sister of Liza Minnelli is starring in a show appearing in Aberdeen this spring.

American TV, stage, and film actress and singer Lorna Luft is joining the cast of the hugely popular hit show, An Evening of Movies and Musicals.

The spectacular show comes to the Music Hall on Friday, April 18 and also features X Factor winner Joe McElderry, West End and Broadway star Kerry Ellis, as well as Nathan James, who is touring as the lead singer on Trans Siberian Orchestra World Tour.

Lorna’s first Broadway musical saw her appear in Promises, Promises, back in 1971, while her film credits include Grease 2 (1982) and she has written an autobiography titled Me and My Shadows: A Family Memoir.

Last October she performed with half-sister, Liza for the first time in 20 years, at two Pink Party shows in New York City, in support of The Actors Fund’s Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and Tower Cancer Research Foundation.

Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects, Ben Torrie, said: “We are delighted to have a major Broadway star like Lorna as a special guest in the Music Hall on what is sure to be a spectacular evening of musicals magic.”

“Her family is of course part of Hollywood legend and to have her singing on the same stage as Kerry Ellis and Joe McElderry is going to make it a show-stopping night.”
