Stop the presses — Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Keely Smith and Marilyn Monroe will be joining forces to perform in Newport Beach next week.
Well, sort of.
Bethany Owen, the "Woman of 1001 Voices and Faces," will bring the four favorites to a one-night appearance Aug. 13 at the Balboa Bay Club.
A singing impersonator par excellence with a dazzling collection of costumes, wigs and routines, Owen can swap in seconds from Madonna to Martha Stewart, Britney Spears to Barbra Streisand.
Hard to imagine that it all started with Edith Bunker.
The fictional New Yorker with the memorably shrill voice from "All in the Family" was Owen's first impersonation. It led her on a path she never could have foreseen when she was an aspiring ballerina.
Owen has since become a well-known singing phenomenon who has performed around the country, and has a long-running one-woman comic revue in Lake Tahoe that features a staggering array of impressions and onstage costume swaps.
