NEW YORK - Start spreading the news: Liza Minnelli will sing again. Almost three weeks after collapsing during a show in Sweden, the 61-year-old entertainer was doing fine and preparing for her next gig, Minnelli's lawyer, Allen Arrow, told The Associated Press on Wednesday."Not to worry," said Arrow. He would not elaborate on Minnelli's health scare.Arrow said Minnelli was going back into rehearsals at the end of the week, and will resume her touring schedule on Jan. 12 in Providence, R.I.
The singer was performing in a Christmas show Dec. 12 in Goteborg, Sweden's second-largest city, when she collapsed while walking offstage. She flew to the United States the next day on the advice of doctors there."She was that sick," Arrow said. "You wonder why she had the courage to get on the stage when she shouldn't have."Minnelli, the daughter of Judy Garland, won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the 1972 film "Cabaret." She won an Emmy for the 1972 TV special "Liza with a Z," and Tony Awards in 1974 and 1978.
