Liza Minnelli Liza With a Z (1972)


Considered lost for more than 30 years, Liza with a Z is the landmark 1972 concert of Liza Minnelli, as filmed on Broadway. The show was produced and directed by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, fresh off the movie adaptation of Cabaret.

The concert was captured live at the Lyceum Theatre May 1972 using six 16mm cameras. The concert went on to win four Emmys for Liza and the production team.

In his article for the New York Post, Robert Rorke said: 'In stark contrast to the glamour shots of her that still pop up in newspapers, in person Minnelli looks every inch Vincente Minnelli’s daughter, with olive skin, deep dark brown eyes and short black hair. Dressed down in black velvet pants and a black zippered sweatshirt, she seems easy to approach, considering her showbiz lineage. Maybe it’s because she’s a great storyteller with a mother lode of anecdotes culled from spending 50 years in the limelight. Like her mom, Minnelli is a diehard vaudevillian who can sell you a song or a story and she will not give up until you feel as buoyant about her memories as she does.'
