It’s always a little bit special when a true living legend visits our shores. Liza Minnelli is one such gem.

Liza hasn’t been here since 1989, when she toured with Frank Sinatra and Sammy David Jr. This time around she’s playing a one-woman show based around her recent Broadway smash Liza’s at the Palace. . . She’ll be backed by a 12-piece orchestra led by conductor and drummer Michael Berkowitz and pianist and musical supervisor Billy Stritch.

Fans can expect to hear all the big hits including “Caberet,” “Maybe This Time,” and “Theme from New York, New York.”
