The evening will feature Minnelli standards as well as tunes from her forthcoming CD, which features the songs of her godmother, Kay Thompson. Show time is 8 PM.
A portion of the proceeds from the evening, which is part of the Whiteweld Foundation Concert Series, will benefit the Don Bosco Preparatory School. The private, Catholic secondary school for young men in grades 9 through 12 was founded in 1915 by the Salesian Society of St. John Bosco.
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'," and Minnelli also received the Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 10th Annual Tony Awards Bash in Los Angeles.
