I can’t let another second go by tho without telling y’all that my friend Jim (to whom I will be eternally grateful for this experience) took me to see Liza Minelli at the Palace on broadway! From the womb of Judy Garland- Liza Minelli! Now I really didn’t know what to expect. Liza’s been through some stuff and I thought “this could just be a crazy train-wreck kind of show…but I really want to see it!” Well, Liza seems to be safely on the other side of crazy! I just can’t say enough about how marvelous the performance was. People just don’t give it to you like that anymore! And it really seemed to be all for us, her adoring audience. I myself could not – not scream after every number. I wasn’t alone in that tho. Everyone just loved it! There was a standing ovation after almost every song. The energy she brought! The outfits! The jokes! The stories (some about “momma”)! Just perfect! Truly one of the most magnificent things I have ever seen and I know I’ll never forget it. I feel so lucky to have had the experience! I think she’s one of the last performers of that caliber out there. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore. I really admired Liza Minelli before I saw her perform live. Now I adore her!! Definitely
a highlight of 2009!
