Liza Minnelli will be David Letterman's guest on the May 13 broadcast of CBS TV's "The Late Show with David Letterman."
The award-winning actress-singer will discuss her upcoming concert engagement as well as her new marriage on the CBS talk show, which airs on CBS at 11:30 PM ET. Letterman's other guest is "Survivor" castoff Robert DeCanio.
As previously announced on Playbill On-Line, Minnelli will perform seven concerts at New York's Beacon Theatre beginning May 31. Produced and directed by Minnelli's new husband, David Gest, Liza's Back! will premiere at the famed Beacon Theatre on May 31 and will play June 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 an 8. The New York engagement follows a critically hailed run at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The Oscar-winning star of Cabaret was last on Broadway in a tribute to her late father entitled Minnelli on Minnelli, which she then took on a tour that was cut short due to poor health. In addition to her Tonys for Flora and 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 actress is also a Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress.
