LIZA'S AT THE PALACE was one of the most thrilling nights of theater I have ever experienced. I hope this happens!

That would make sense if it made any at all.

"The as-yet-untitled solo musical depicts a single day in the life of a woman as she recalls her past and looks back at her various experiences, obstensibly contemplating "the meaning of existence" all the while."

Holy cr@p...

That sounds like my day, today.
...because Broadway Cares

Completely agree with you, Wicked. Seeing Liza at The Palace was incredible. Such a presence...such an energy & such a talent.

No disrespect to the legendary performer- but even she's willing to admit that she can barely make it through her concert shows. I don't see how she can do this...

I would see this, but hope it doesn't end up like Elaine Sritch's last concerts. Yes, she was older, but...

No offense to Ms. Minnelli or any of her fans, but I think this is just a waste of theater space. I find her singing voice to be extremely irratating.
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

I would be worried for her health. Maybe if she plays a small part with a solo, that would be easy for her.

Some things you should just keep to yourself. If you don't like it, just don't go.

Theatrediva - Why should I keep my opinion to myself? This is a board where we can discuss our opinions, whether negative or positive. I am not hating on Liza, I simply expressed my disinterest in her work.

What was the point of putting that in a thread where you knew people would get excited about the possibility of her doing a show? To show that you were "cooler than us" with your "anti Liza' attitude?

And Diva was expressing his opinion of you the same way you chose to do so by your very own logic, why should he keep his opinion of you to himself?

Don't be disingenuous. Of COURSE you are hating on Liza.

If you were "disinterested," you wouldn't have responded to this at all.

Let alone TWICE.

Well, I'm a bit conflicted. On the one hand, it would be fabulous to see her in a Broadway show. She still has a lot to offer. If that does happen, perhaps she should focus on songs that don't require belting. When I saw her in concert in 2010, her "NY NY" was sort of excruciating. She was fine with the other songs, but not so much with her attempts at belting. I also wonder if she's healthy enough to undertake a strenuous Broadway run. She does seem to be prone to illness. Just saying... from RC in Austin, Texas

It really wouldn't break my heart to never hear her sing NYNY again, but I know a lot of people expect her to do it. She's capable of so much more than being hemmed in by casual fan expectations allow. I wish she would bury a lot of the stuff that's "expected."
