LIZA MINNELLI is now in her fifth decade as an internationally celebrated performer. Recently, after a triumphant 75-city international tour, she brought Liza’s at The Palace to Broadway, which garnered her a 2009 Drama Desk Award and a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event. At age 19, Liza won her first Tony Award for her Broadway debut in Flora, the Red Menace. She was the youngest artist to win Best Actress in a Musical – a record she holds to this day. Minnelli has won two additional Tony Awards: one for her 1974 engagement at the Winter Garden Theatre, and one for her 1978 performance in The Act. She received a Tony nomination for her role in The Rink and was inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 2001. Additional Broadway credits include Chicago and Minnelli On Minnelli. In June 2008, she was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. Liza won an Academy Award for her legendary performance in the 1972 film Cabaret. Minnelli’s other movies include The Sterile Cuckoo (Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations), New York, New York (Golden Globe nomination), Arthur (Golden Globe nomination), Stepping Out, Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon, and Charlie Bubbles. Minnelli received an Emmy and a Peabody Award for her 1972 landmark TV special, Liza With a ‘Z’. A restored and re-mastered DVD was released in 2006 by Showtime, which won a Satellite Award. She subsequently starred in television specials co-starring legends like Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Goldie Hawn. Liza recently achieved critical praise playing Lucille Austero on the Emmy-winning Arrested Development. As a recording artist, Liza has received a Grammy Living Legend Award and four Gold Record certifications. Highlights include the albums Liza With a ‘Z’, Live at the Winter Garden, At Carnegie Hall, and Results. Compilations include The Complete Capitol Collection and The Complete A&M Recordings. Liza, her mother, Judy Garland, and her father, Vincente Minnelli, are the only family in Hollywood history to have all received an Academy Award.
