The 7:30 PM screening will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and will boast an appearance by Liza Minnelli as well as the film's executive producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
The fully restored and digitally remastered version of Liza Minnelli's iconic 1972 concert will also air on the Showtime Network April 1. Minnelli worked with producers Zadan and Meron to bring back the special, which was originally broadcast on NBC on Sept. 10, 1972. The show won a Peabody Award along with four Emmy Awards, including Best Performance for Minnelli, Best Direction and Best Choreography for Bob Fosse, and Best Music, Lyrics and Special Material for John Kander and Fred Ebb.
