"Liza' Back With True Confessions!" is the true story, ...umm well the story of Liza Minnelli that Tribute Artist Richard DeFonzo channels while dishing her husbands, relationships and revealing her amazing childhood and what she wore. Told through comedy, song and dance, and snapshots of her life. This hilarious show illuminates the ups and downs of a celebrity life in the spotlight and highlights some of the pitfalls that occur along the way.
Known throughout New York City, the United States, and internationally as a premiere Liza Minnelli and Joan Rivers impersonator, Richard began his career as a professional actor. His talent as a dancer, singer and Tribute Artist honoring two of the twentieth century's most iconic female performers has led him to perform his show in places as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Atlantic City, Fire Island, New Hope as well as to international stages in London, Holland and Brussels. Shortly after he put his first pair of Liza eye lashes on people starting noticing "the new girl in town". Fourteen years later Richard is thrilled to have a fun filled and exciting evening of theatre which celebrates Liza's life, her career and the birthright as Hollywood Royalty. The new show "Liza's Back with True Confessions" also features the talents of performers Judah Gavra and Patrick Heffernan. The show is choreographed by Tony and Drama Desk nominee, Broadway choreographer Randy Skinner. Musical direction is by Jeffrey Buchsbaum and written and directed by John Burke. In November Richard is so excited to be going back to London to perform his new show.
