Broadway will get her in January when she goes into Victor/Victoria for a vacationing Julie Andrews, but Long Island will get Liza Minnelli this week, as she performs in concert at Westbury Music Fair, Oct. 23-27.

According to Westbury spokesman Dan Kellachan, aside from the usual "expected" Minnelli songs (possibly "New York, New York," "Cabaret"), Minnelli will be singing numbers from her new album, "Gently" -- subtitled "The Makeout Album." Among the tunes on this Angel Records release are "I Got Lost In His Arms" (from Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun), "Embraceable You," a duet with Johnny Mathis on his "Chances Are," and a Herbie Hancock-arranged "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning."

Music director for the concert, which features more than 16 musicians plus the Alexander Cortes Trio, is Bill La Vorgna.

A 19-year-old Minnelli won the Tony for her Broadway debut in Flora, The Red Menace in 1965, though her most famous role was in Bob Fosse's film version of another Kander & Ebb musical, Cabaret. She also won an Emmy Award for her TV special, "Liza With a Z."

Minnelli is, of course, the daughter of Judy Garland and film director, Vincente Minnelli. For tickets ($45) and information on "Liza In Concert," call (516) 334-0800.
