Liza's at the Palace Blu-Ray and DVD to Be Released February 2


By: Dan Bacalzo · Jan 5, 2010 · New York
Oscar, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winner Liza Minnelli will release her first-ever Blu-ray disc on February 2. Liza's at the Palace, a recording of her big 2009 Tony-winning Broadway show, will also be released on DVD from MPI.
The show was recorded at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on October 1, 2009, where she re-created her Broadway show at the Palace Theater. The full two-hour performance features songs written by such greats as George and Ira Gershwin, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Sammy Cahn and the team most associated with Minnelli, John Kander and Fred Ebb, composers of the showstoppers "Cabaret," "Maybe This Time," "But the World Goes 'Round" and "New York, New York." The performance also includes two special tributes: to Minnelli's mother, Judy Garland, via a performance of Garland's own 1951 Palace Theater tribute to vaudeville; and to Minnelli's godmother, Kay Thompson, a groundbreaking singer-dancer, songwriter and vocal arranger/coach at MGM in the 1940s.
Minnelli is joined in the program by her Broadway co-star and musical director, Billy Stritch. The show is directed by the Oscar- and Emmy-nominated Matthew Diamond.For more information, visit
