Acting and singing legend Liza Minnelli has canceled her national tour — including an appearance at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center — due to health concerns, according to the venue.
Minnelli was scheduled to perform Nov. 12, a bonus show on the Broken Arrow PAC’s big Spotlight Series that features some of the biggest names of stage and screen.
Refunds will be available to those who purchased tickets. For refund information, call the box office at 918-259-5778 or in person at 701 S. Main St. in downtown Broken Arrow. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Officials with Minnelli’s management said Minnelli’s doctor requested she cancel a series of shows to focus on improving her health.
“Liza Minnelli has been advised by her physician to cancel her upcoming concerts in Oklahoma and Texas. She deeply regrets that she will not be able to perform for her devoted fans and is very grateful for the love they have shown her throughout her career,” said manager Ken DiCamillo of WME Entertainment.
Officials with the Broken Arrow PAC said a replacement show is in the works for spring 2016, though details are still being determined.
“We wish Ms. Minnelli the best, and although we are disappointed, we realize her health is of the utmost importance,” said Mark Frie, executive director of the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center. “We thank our patrons for their support and excitement generated from this year’s line-up and promise to continue to bring legendary talent to the Kristin Chenoweth Theatre for years to come.”
