Thompson and Minnelli were friends until the end of Thompson's life, when she died on July 2, 1998.

Minnelli's ensemble includes Jim Caruso, Cortes Alexander, Johnny Rodgers and Clarke Thorell.

In addition to her Emmy for "Liza with a Z," Minnelli has won three Tony Awards, an Oscar, and two Golden Globes. She won a Theatre World Award for Best Foot Forward, Tony Awards for Flora, the Red Menace and The Act, and a Special Tony Award in 1974. She was nominated for an Oscar for The Sterile Cuckoo, and won the Oscar and the Golden Globe Award for the film version of Cabaret, directed by Bob Fosse.
