matthew_iliffe: Liza in Victor/Victoria, because it's just Liza...
Marisa Maffia: Does anyone remember Liza Minnelli in Victor Victoria? Julie Andrews is great but to have another living legend replace a role Julie Andrews is known for is amazing! I will never forget that one.

Showbiz icon Liza Minnelli took over the role of Victoria Grant in the Broadway musical Victor/Victoria for four weeks in 1997 while the musical's original star, Julie Andrews, was on vacation. It was the last time Minnelli played a role on Broadway – she has returned to the Great White Way numerous times with her acclaimed solo concerts.
