BWW TV: On The Road With LIZA!
Before hitting the Palace Theatre stage on December 2nd-in a special Actor's Fund performance, no less, Liza Minnelli and her talented team brought the musical magic to Rome's Sala S. Cecilia Auditorium to a nightly chorus of applause.
With that much "Minnelli" excitement happening abroad we knew we'd have to do something special so BroadwayWorld reached out to Liza and her "boys" Cortes Alexander, Jim Caruso, Tiger Martina and Johnny Rodgers and gave them a Flip video camera to record all fun as they wowed the crowds in Italy. But we didn't just stop there, in future webisodes you'll get a backstage view all the way up until Opening Night! Serving as your "host with the most" is Mr. Cast Party himself, Jim Caruso, now, stop reading and start watching as Liza makes her way through Rome on the road back to Broadway!
Due to overwhelming demand, "Liza's At The Palace...." the new show starring Liza Minnelli will play an additional two weeks of performances at Broadway's Palace Theatre (Broadway & 47th Street). With an opening set for December 3rd, Miss Minnelli will bring her unmatchable magic to Broadway for an engagement now scheduled to play through December 28th---surpassing the originally announced closing date of December 14th. Included in the extension, is a special holiday matinee at 3PM on December 24th.
Along with a twelve-man orchestra led by conductor/drummer Michael Berkowitz and pianist/musical supervisor Billy Stritch, "Liza's At The Palace.... will be highlighted with many of Liza's showstoppers such as "Cabaret," "Maybe This Time," and "New York New York" - all written especially for her by the legendary Broadway song writing partnership of John Kander and Fred Ebb. For the first time onstage, Liza will pay an affectionate salute to her godmother, the late Kay Thompson who was a legendary performer ("Think Pink!" from "Funny Face"), author ("Eloise at the Plaza") as well a gifted vocal arranger and Music Director/vocal coach at MGM Studios who worked with stars such as Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and Lena Horne.
Accompanying her onstage will be Johnny Rodgers, Cortes Alexander, Jim Caruso and Tiger Martina. The concert performance will be scripted by Liza and Tony Award-winner David Zippel, and will be full of personal stories, anecdotes and heartfelt reminiscences embraced in a theatrical setting featuring scenery by Ray Klausen, costumes by Halston, lighting by Matt Berman and sound by Matt Kraus.
"Liza's At The Palace...." will play the following performance schedule at the Palace Theatre (Broadway & 47th Street) : Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8PM with matinees on Sundays at 3PM. On Wednesday, December 24th there will be a special 3PM matinee performance and no 8PM evening show. Tickets prices range from $125 to $55. (Upon special request by Liza--- $25 seats will be made available at box office by daily lottery.)
