Lezzie With A ‘Z’ Caitlin Lee Reid & Will Larche
About This Show
Lezzie with a ‘Z’ is a one-woman show and an homage to Liza Minnelli’s 1972 filmed theatrical production: Liza with a ‘Z’. Peppered with Reid’s dry wit and own real-life tales of being gay-married and gay-divorced by 27, she breaks the lesbian glass ceiling of musical theatre, and learns to strap-on and sing out. Written and performed by Caitlin Lee Reid and Will Larche.
