Reviews of Liberace & Liza

Local Reviews

"The songs are cheerfully and expertly delivered, the impersonations are loving and lived-in, and Saffert and Snow have such a chemistry that their comic banter shines as brightly as their glittering outfits. It’s a delight." —Oregon ArtsWatch

 It’s a fun, campy, and loving tribute, and the camaraderie the two have is beautiful. —BroadwayWorld

Audience Raves

"Lighthearted and fun backed by real talent."

"We loved everything about this show! It was absolutely delightful. Both actors did incredible jobs capturing the essence of these two icons. My face hurts today from smiling, and my belly hurts from laughing."

"That was a super fun start to the holiday season. Thank you for bringing this duo to your stage!"

"Nostalgic and excellent interpretations of the characters."

"Lively! Lovely! Laughable (in a good way)! The sound balance between instrumentals and vocals was excellent. The setting was delightful. Great way to kick off the holiday season."

"It kept me entertained. Such a joyous night of entertainment." 

Critic Reviews

“Highly entertaining … good music, good comedy, good fun, good time.” –Oregon ArtsWatch

“Whether they’re doing Britney Spears’s ‘Toxic’ or an old Judy Garland tune, it is breathtaking in the funniest, most wonderful way,” Hudson says. “Simultaneously retro and groundbreaking.” Carla Rossi in a PDX Montly feature

“The show imagines the living and departed legends as besties, with a hint of sibling rivalry. Between carols, audience sing-alongs, and Saffert's Liberace-esque piano renditions, there's room for plenty of wisecracking banter. And sequins.” –The Oregonian

“The show celebrated the immense talent and quirky personas of Liberace and Liza while playing upon an imaginary friendship between the two. Saffert and Harris, who’ve performed together for years, played their Liberace and Liza beautifully off one another, at times best friends and at others, hilarious frenemies.” –San Francisco Chronicle
