Lezzie with a Z is a one-woman show that is an homage to Liza Minnelli’s 1972 filmed theatrical production: Liza with a "Z". Lezzie with a Z stars musical theatre performer Caitlin Lee Reid, branded in her most recent 4-star review by Time Out NY as an “adorkable dyke”. Lezzie with a Z puts a new twist on classic Broadway tunes to tell an autobiographical story of being gay-married and gay-divorced by age 27.
Written and performed by Caitlin Lee Reid and Will Larche.
