Trivia

Another song, "Mein Herr" from Cabaret (1972) was filmed, but due to time constraints of broadcast TV, this did not make it into the final show. All that remains of this number is a fair quality work print and is included as an extra on the DVD. See more »

Quotes

Liza Minnelli: I have found for a long time people still have been calling me "Lisa." Wrong! My name is Liza. It has a "z" in it. For example, someone might come up to me and say, "Hello, Lisa, how are you?" And I'd say, "Fine, but my name is Liza." Or someone would come up and say, "Oh, Lisa, what a nice hat you have on." And I'd say, "Thank you very much, but my name is Liza, and that's my hair."

Simply the best!
3 November 2000 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

When I first viewed this TV concert in 1972 I thought it the best TV concert ever. Nothing in the intervening 28 years has done anything to change my mind. Liza and director-choreographer Bob Fosse are at the peak of their respective careers and it shows in this luminous performance. I still hope for its return to video in some format.
