Liza Minnelli: End of a Broadway era

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/04/23/liza-minelli-kander-ebb-broadway-column/26178331/

Kander and Ebb writing team's final show, 'The Visit', opens tonight.

Tonight the curtain comes down on the current Broadway season, and what a season it has been. More people have seen a Broadway show this year than have attended all of New York City's professional sports teams' home games combined. Broadway, one of this city's great beacons, has come to represent everything glamorous and exciting about New York and show business the world over.
My first Broadway opening was 50 years ago (almost to the day), when I starred inFlora, The Red Menace, for which I won my first Tony Award. That show also marked the first collaboration between the writing team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, whom I would go on to work with throughout my career. The work of these two theatrical giants, from Cabaret to Chicago, would come to shape and define the careers of an entire generation of theater artists.
Tonight also marks the opening night of Kander and Ebb's very last show. Starring the incomparable Chita Rivera, The Visit represents the final moment in one of the most remarkable ongoing collaborations in the history of the theater. To give you an idea of the kind of impact they have had, at least one Kander and Ebb show has been running on Broadway during 41 of the last 50 years. This year alone, there have been three.
Their work will live on in revivals until the end of time, of course, but the thrill and privilege of hearing their words and music sung out loud for the first time is singular. But like all that is wonderful and special about the theater, that thrill and privilege is all too fleeting.
I've always said that Broadway is the beating heart of New York City,and Kander and Ebb have been at its very center since our collaborative debut in 1965.
And, if Broadway is its beating heart, the lifeblood pumping through New York's veins is made up of giant ambition and great aspiration -- not just of the thousands of theater professionals who make up Broadway itself, but of anybody who chooses to make a life here. How fitting that my friends John and Fred summed this up perfectly in their iconic love letter to this town:
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
C'mon come through
New York, New York
New Haven's Shubert Theater in 1965 featured a world premiere of Kander and Ebb's "Flora the Red Menace," featuring Liza Minnelli.

Luigi Facciuto, Liza Minnelli's Dance Teacher to Broadway Stars, Dies at 90

“Luigi is now teaching the angels to dance.”
That’s how Francis J. Roach‎ of Luigi's Jazz Centre announced the passing of Louis “Luigi” Facciuto, 90, a master dance teacher who counted Susan StromanLiza Minnelli, and several members of the original cast of A Chorus Line, including Donna McKechnie and Kelly Bishop, among his many students over a six-decade career.
On his Facebook page, Roach wrote, “Late last fall, our beloved maestro unexpectedly required emergency surgery. The outpouring of love and support that he received at that time was greatly appreciated, and still is. After much loving care he was able to return to his home in New York City for over a month, where he passed away today.”
Though Facciuto did not have a Broadway career, he danced in several classic MGM musical films, including "Singin’ in the Rain," "An American in Paris" and "On the Town."

Roach said Facciuto will be buried in his hometown of Steubenville, OH, and that a memorial celebration of his life and legacy will be announced in the near future.

With press attention largely focused on the onstage antics, it's easy to forget that 1973's landmark Americans-versus-the-French fashion faceoff, the Battle of Versailles, also featured an A-plus-list crowd. Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Grace of Monaco were present to take in the transatlantic showdown.
Performers like Liza Minnelli (performing an adapted version of "Bonjour Paris") and Jane Birkin were also among the revelers. Click through the slideshow to see some of the most-notable attendees from the jet-setting audience, as well as standout performers from the night.

Liza Minnelli, who recently entered a rehab facility for substance abuse, is in good spirits and ready to go back to work.

"Liza is doing very well in rehab and coming along fine," a source close to the entertainer tells PEOPLE.

"So eager to get out and go back to work, she is busy arranging her next projects."

Minnelli, 69, thrives on music and performing, but has struggled with substance abuse over the years.

"It's no secret she has dealt with this for years," her spokesperson Scott Gorenstein told PEOPLE. "And when she felt the need to seek help again, she did."
 Indeed, those who know her insist that nothing will keep her down.

Minnelli is working on several new musical ventures, including more concerts and charity events. Such a natural performer, she entertained for charity two years ago while plagued with a broken wrist.

She also surprises friends with impromptu songs when she is out on the town socially.

"Liza is a survivor," a longtime friend of the singer told PEOPLE. "She is a champ."

Liza Minnelli Is a Survivor, Friend Says

Following the news that Liza Minnelli entered rehab for substance abuse, her friends say she'll make it through, just like she has before.

"Liza is a survivor," says a longtime friend of the legendary singer, 69. "She is a champ. She has struggled with addiction and gone through [experiences] that would kill an elephant. She is incredibly brave."

The Cabaret star has sought treatment for substance abuse in the past. "It's no secret she has dealt with this for years," her spokesperson Scott Gorenstein tells PEOPLE. "And when she felt the need to seek help again, she did."

Once she is out and ready for her next steps, Gorenstein says there are upcoming projects in the works, including a series of concerts later this year. Her latest song, "Until The End" with Wynton Marsalis, which was released on Dec. 2, was written and produced by Oscar-nominated composer and producer J. Ralph for the documentary Garnet's Gold.



As she puts it in the song: "It's not over til the end."
