Michael Musto reports in out.com that producer Daniel Nardicio plans to present the acclaimed artists at Broadway's Marquis Theatre this December for 12 performances.

The duo previously played two performances at New York's Town Hall in March. Those concerts, also produced by Nardicio, celebrated Minnelli's 67th birthday.

No official announcement about a Broadway engagement has been made.

"These incomparable stars will duet on familiar songs from Cabaret and Liza will dip into her repertoire of signature songs known the world over," according to Town Hall press notes. "Alan will perform his renditions of songs — from Annie Lennox to his own original compositions. These two old friends will also interact on stage together — sharing stories, songs, and banter of their adventures in life and show-business."

Emmy-winning composer Lance Horne and Broadway's Billy Stritch were the musical directors for the previous concerts.
