Entertainer Lorna Luft returns to London in March with four performances of her new nightclub act To “L” and Back. The concerts will take place March 11–15 at Live at Zédel.
Luft premiered the show at Feinstein’s/54 Below last fall. Expect favorites from the Great American Songbook, “some of them made famous by her mother, as well as stories from Hollywood, Broadway, and beyond as only she can tell them.”
The daughter of entertainment icon Judy Garland, Luft made her professional singing debut on TV’s The Judy Garland Show and went on to featured roles on film and television, including Grease 2, Where the Boys Are ’84, and Murder, She Wrote. Luft technically made her Broadway debut in 1967 when she joined her mother onstage in her 1967 Palace Theatre concert, but she took the stage on her own in 1971 as a replacement as the female lead in the musical Promises, Promises. Other stage appearances include the 1981 national tour of They're Playing Our Song, the 1992 tour of Guys and Dolls, and both U.S. and U.K. tours of Irving Berlin's White Christmas. Her 1998 family memoir Me and My Shadows was adapted as an Emmy-winning TV miniseries.
Luft recently published a new book chronicling the history of the film A Star Is Born—its release and its legacy—with co-author Jeffrey Vance. A Star Is Born: Judy Garland and the Film That Got Away includes never-before-seen photographs from her family collection that capture Garland on set and at home during the making of A Star Is Born.
