STAGE TUBE: Liza Performs on 'Oprah!'
As BroadwayWorld has previously reported Liza Minnelli released the most intimate and revealing recording of her career, Confesssions, Today, September 21st (Decca). A collection of American classics, Confessions features some of Minnelli's favorite songs of all time, arranged simply and elegantly, with accompaniment by her long-time pianist Billy Stritch.
To celebrate the release Minnelli made a rare television appearance on Oprah this afternoon. Liza performed on the program and spoke to Oprah Winfrey about her storied career. She will also appear on Good Morning America (October 1), The View (October 5), Larry King Live (October 5) and CNN International's Connect The World (October 6).

With Confessions, Minnelli dug deeper into the catalogues of great writers, balancing beloved numbers like "All the Way" and "At Last" with such hidden gems as "You Fascinate Me So" and "Moments Like This." The timeless songs were written by the accomplished likes of Jerome Kern, Cy Coleman, Irving Berlin and Sammy Cahn to name a few.
Liza Minnelli remains one of the world's most beloved performers, and belongs to an elite group of entertainers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Oscar Award. Confessions is the follow-up to her wildly acclaimed 2008 return to Broadway, "Liza's at the Palace..." which was nominated for a Grammy, and also won the Tony Award (her fourth) for Best Special Theatrical Event. As someone who represents the whole package, Liza Minnelli is a one-a-of-kind, multi-talented, larger-than-life superstar the world over.
