Liza Minnelli will bring her unmatchable magic BACK to Broadway, when she stars in her new show "Liza's At The Palace...!" opening Wednesday, December 3rd at the Palace Theatre for a limited engagement through December 14th. BroadwayWorld's cameras were on hand to capture a first look at Liza and her team in rehearsal. 

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. Supported by a quartet of dynamic singer/dancers, Liza will perform musical hits (with the original vocal arrangements) from Thompson's act including such numbers as "I Love a Violin," "Clap Yo' Hands," "Jubilee Time" and "Hello Hello"---set to brand-new staging and choreography by Mr. Lewis. Accompanying her onstage will be Cortes Alexander, Jim Caruso, Tiger Martina and Johnny Rodgers.

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 Matthew Berman and sound by Matt Krauss.

The show will be produced by John Scher/Metropolitan Talent Presents & Jubilee Time Productions and directed and choreographed by Ron Lewis, the evening will feature an Minnelli songfest including many of her personal favorites and signature hits, followed by a dance-filled tribute to the groundbreaking late-1940s nightclub act of Minnelli's godmother, Kay Thompson. Gary Labriola will serve as Executive Producer.

"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. Tickets prices range from $125 to $55.
