Follow the yellow brick road...
Lorna Luft visits the Rovers Return!
Lorna Luft – Judy Garland’s daughter, for those of you who've been living in a gay vacuum since birth – swapped the Yellow Brick Road for the cobbles of Coronation Street today as she took a break from performing in The Wizard of Oz at The Lowry.
"I’ve been watching Coronation Street for years," explained Lorna, "and I’ve realised a long-held ambition today coming on set to meet some of the stars. I’m hoping to have a drink in the Rovers Return. Now that would be the best Christmas present ever.”
Antony Cotton commented: “I grew up with a love of the old Hollywood musicals and I adore Lorna’s music. It’s been a real treat to have her visit the street”.
Wizard of Oz is on at The Lowry until Sun 4 January, http://www.thelowry.com/.
