Minnelli will welcome her "Cabaret" co-star Joel Grey as a special guest at all three performances. Grey will open the show and will also perform with the legendary singer-actress. The 2003 season at the Westbury will also include appearances from R&B legend Patti LaBelle, singer Belinda Carlisle and actors Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna, who will offer their hit comedy It Had To Be You on March 22. Veteran performers Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme will also appear at the Westbury in "One More for the Road — Our Last Tour," from May 14-18. Liza Minnelli, an Oscar winner for her performance in Cabaret, was last on Broadway in a tribute to her late father entitled Minnelli on Minnelli; she returned to New York City's Beacon Theatre this year with her acclaimed concert Liza's Back! In addition to her Tonys for Flora, the Red Menace and The Act, Minnelli was awarded a special Tony in 1974 for "adding lustre to the Broadway season." Her film credits include "The Sterile Cuckoo," "Arthur," "New York, New York" and "Stepping Out." The singer is also a Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress. Her newest album, "Liza's Back!" (J Records), is now in stores.
Joel Grey won a Tony Award for his role as the Emcee in the original Broadway production of Cabaret. He later repeated the role on film to Oscar-winning effect. Grey's other theatrical credits include roles in George M!, Goodtime Charley and The Grand Tour, receiving Tony nominations for all three productions. A Kennedy Center honoree, Grey was last on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago.
