Lorna's Pink Party

I'm walking on air. I love Lorna Luft.

Lorna entered through the back of the Birdland dining area in a pink sequins top singing Pink's "Get This Party Started!" She looks terrific and sounds terrific.

Then Liza joins her onstage to sing a medley included IF MOMMA WAS MARRIED!!!

Ann Hampton Callaway (a breast cancer survivor as well) sang a gorgeous mash up of People and Being Alive.

Then her sister decided to belt out THE STORY GOES ON as if she were recording it for the OBCR.

The evening ended with Ann and Lorna recreating the Streisand/Garland medley and they both blew me away.

Lorna announced that she wants to play Mame and some producer needs to make this happen, even if it's just an Encoresy type run.

I'm so happy for Lorna triumphing over her disease and then putting on a show like this. May there be many more to come!!!

It was a very emotional evening. I wish I had known you were there.

Here's a video of Lorna and Liza singing the last part of their medley, Sondheim's "Nothing's Gonna Harm You."

And Whizzer--don't you know that medley? It's the one they sang together on the Tony Awards, twenty years ago. Tonight was their first time singing together since then:

So I am guessing that Liza and Lorna have reconciled after a long estrangement.

I wish I had known you were there too, PJ.

I didn't know Liza and Lorna were singing an old medley. How has that one slipped under my radar?!?!

This is going to sound like complete cheese, but it's true: the night was very inspiring and uplifting. Lorna is not just a survivor, but someone who turned what could have been a the lowest point of her life into a celebration. She was so happy and that joy oozed out of her. Like Phyllis Newman said, "The best part of being in the entertainment industry is that when bad things happen, we perform."

Btw, in just two shows Lorna raised over $100,000 for charity.

And, yes, Liza and Lorna are reconciled. They have been for quite some time, but people like to think they are feuding.

Just like people like to think Paul and Yoko are feuding. (At long last, Paul's finally reached a state of "she made him happy, so I... can live with that, I guess." Good, because the source of the tension was beginning to become more and more obvious the older they got.)

At the end of that video, its like Judy is watching over them with the bit of Over the Rainbow that is played.
