WESTMINSTER – Enjoy a very special evening of music and laughter as Liza Minnelli and Robin Williams are creatively brought to life through a cabaret show from 7 until 9 pm. Friday, Aug. 25, in the Eloranta Room of the Forbush Memorial Library, 118 Main St.
Charlotte Anne Dore, well-known actor and cabaret singer will perform Liza Minnelli’s greatest hits alternating with Roger Kabler’s captivating recreation of the late Robin Williams.
“I have presented cabaret shows as myself in Boston in the before times as I call it and it’s going to be exciting to return to a full program as I love to sing,” said Dore.
Dore says she has portrayed various characters in the past from Abigail Adams to Boy George and now for this event she is thrilled to portray Liza Minnelli.
“I consider her one of the divas of musical theatre and cabaret and as I have been preparing to portray Liza, I found a wonderful quote of hers – ‘Each song is a little movie. A slice of life’ – and that is how I approach all the songs I present whether I am as myself or Liza or anyone else,” Dore said.
Dore will present as Liza in the first half and then as herself in the second half of the evening. “As myself, I will be talking about some other divas and singing some favorite tunes including ‘At Last’ and ‘Beauty and The Beast’. I will be singing of course from cabaret that made Liza famous.”
Dore also says how Liza talked about the philosophy that her mother, Judy Garland, gave her – “You are what you contribute to others”.
“As a full-time performer for both adults and children I too feel very strongly about the need for arts and music as a way to bring people together, bring joy, and help people through their feelings,” said Dore.
The show is free to all. Seating is first-come, first-served.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the show beginning at 7 p.m. for this cabaret-style, adult-oriented evening of great entertainment. The Forbush Library is fully accessible; call 978-874-7416 for more information. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Forbush Memorial Library.
