An Intimate Evening with Liza featuring Billy Stritch will be presented at 7 PM. The concert will be followed by an 8:30 PM dinner at the Gardiner property on James Lane.

Prior to Liza's at the Palace. . ., 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 also returned to New York City's Beacon Theatre 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 album "Liza's Back!" is available on the J Records label, and "The Best of Liza Minnelli" was released on the Columbia/Legacy label. Showtime aired "Liza with a 'Z'," and Minnelli also received the Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 10th Annual Tony Awards Bash in Los Angeles.

A composer, pianist and singer, Billy Stritch has performed in night clubs and concert halls around the world. His recordings include "Jazz Live," "Waters of March" and "Billy Stritch," and he also composed Reba McEntire's quintuple-platinum hit "Does He Love You." Stritch's TV appearances include "The View," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and the Stephen Sondheim celebration at Carnegie Hall. On Broadway he was seen in 42nd Street, where he met his frequent cabaret co-star, Christine Ebersole.
