"Liza Minnelli is a familiar sight shopping in the East 60s, but someone at the neighborhood Gap could use a refresher course in recognizing local legends.

A Gatecrasher pal reports this recent sighting of her at the E. 66th and Third Ave. store, where she was being helped by a sales assistant.

"The employee asked her, 'Has anyone ever told you you look like Judy Garland?'" says the snitch. "She coldly answered, 'No!'"

You'd leave it alone after that, right?

"The confused employee went on to say, 'Oh my God! You're her! You are Judy Garland!'"

Oh. No. She. Didn't.

"Ms. Minnelli looked up with fire in her eyes and snapped back, 'Judy Garland is dead!'"

She then grabbed the pants she had been trying on "and stated to no one in particular, 'I've gotta get out of here!' She made a mad dash to the registers and then out the door."

Well that makes the whole thing funnier don't you think? I mean, being mistaken for your Mom is funny, but a random woman shopping in the gap being mistaken for Judy Garland- now that is a knee slapper. Imagine her at home with her husband "Honey, do I look anything like Judy Garland? Is it this haircut? Maybe you were right I shouldn't have gone shopping in this man's topcoat, black tights and fedora!"

It could be worse- If she'd been shopping at Dollar General the clerk would have said "Ain't you Lorna Luft?"

It's a meanly twisted ripoff of an incident posted on another theatre, um, 'chat' board. As related by the poster, who was standing in line behind her, someone approached Liza and asked her if anyone had ever told her she looks just like Liza Minnelli. The polite and succinct reply received was, "Yes."

The observer admitted to having a hard time not bursting out laughing.

I wonder how many times in her life she's been asked that, it would get old wouldn't it.

The reference to her looking Like Judy Garland. Many is the time when watching her I've thought, My God, she looks like her mother. She just has to turn a certain way and there it is...

A: Never Happened

B: How could you miss this story right inder Liza's story?:

Original cast members Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal returned to Broadway on Thursday night for a six-week run in the East Village musical that made them famous.

The audience, clearly stocked with die-hard fans, whooped so loudly when the duo took the stage that the cast struggled to repress smirks.

I asked Rapp whether he had any nutty-fan stories.

"There was this one woman who befriended us," he said. "This person had a debilitating illness, she told us. She needed surgery. Then her mother e-mailed us to say she was in a coma."

But after the cast and the fan community rallied around her, it turned out she wasn't sick at all and was posing as her own mother in e-mails.

"It was all a lie to get close to the cast," said Rapp.

Gosh. What happened to her?

"She was a med student. She's a doctor now."

Oh yeah. That happened during the original cast's run- was it a documentary or a whole episode of a TV news magazine? In any case there was very lengthy TV coverage of her faking illness to befriend the cast.

The Public Radio show "This American Life" did an episode on the RENT story several years ago.

So I'm confused- did this happen at a Gap in Spain or what?

It's true! I was there!

But it wasn't a Gap. It was a Dress Barn. Or maybe an Old Navy. I can't really remember.
