Minnelli guest stars on NBC's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," which airs in the New York area on Channel 4 from 9-10 PM ET; check local listings. The episode is titled "Masquerade" and is described thusly: "A former beauty queen (Minnelli) whose daughter, Amberleigh was found murdered on Halloween night 1992, is thrown back into the public eye when a pedophile in exile confesses to her murder. Detectives Goren and Eames aren't convinced it's that easy and re-question the mother, who was originally accused of the crime, as well as her informative, best-selling author neighbor, Nate Royce (guest star Bill Irwin)." The hour-long drama features Chris Noth, Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, Eric Bogosian and Julianne Nicholson.
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 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'" in April, and Minnelli recently received the Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 10th Annual Tony Awards Bash in Los Angeles.
