In a recent interview with AL.com, Minnelli said about her concert return, "Well, I try and do the things that people like. Like 'New York, New York' and 'Cabaret' ... But I also try to put in things that I know people there haven't heard... So it's a big surprise, kids. I'm excited about coming."
She added, "I'm trying to add a little more hopeful side. I mean the songs I choose... I try and go from what I've learned, and also what I'd like to hear, what I enjoy. New things and old things. ... I like to sing something that makes you feel slightly different when you walk out. Happier, and satisfied."
Minnelli will also perform her show Great Day Nov. 12 at 7:30 PM at The Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center in Broken Arrow, OK, where Kristin Chenoweth was honored with the Kristin Chenoweth Theatre in 2012.
Minnelli won Tony Awards for her performances in Flora, The Red Menace; and The Act. She also received a 1974 Special Tony Award for "adding lustre to the Broadway season."
She won an Academy Award for her performance as Sally Bowles in the film version of the Broadway classic Cabaret.
