Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming Share Town Hall Stage March 13-14
By Andrew Gans
Liza Minnelli, who won an Academy Award for her performance as Sally Bowles in the film version of Cabaret, and Alan Cumming, who won a Tony for his work as the Emcee in the Broadway revival of that John Kander and Fred Ebb musical, join forces for two concerts at New York's Town Hall March 13-14.
The 8 PM concerts celebrate Minnelli's 67th birthday. The duo previously teamed for sold-out shows in Fire Island.
Daniel Nardicio produces.
At Town Hall, press notes state, "these incomparable stars will duet on familiar songs from Cabaret and Liza will dip into her repertoire of signature songs known the world over. 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."
The evening is under the musical direction of Emmy-winning composer Lance Horne.
Cumming will return to Broadway later this season in a solo version of Macbeth.
Tickets are $110-$200; visit Ticketmaster.com.
