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 »

Goofs

During "Money, Money, Money" Liza's silver necklace disappears and re-appears a few times. 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."

I was lucky to see it on real time
28 September 2004 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

i was lucky enough to have seen the show when it was originally broadcast. I have been looking for a copy of this show either on VHS or Video Disc. But have not been able to achieve my goal. Anyway, I remember that I was impacted, I fell in love with Liza that very first time, what a woman, Energy, Charisma, strength, voice. I remember watching her sing every song, I used to know all the lyrics of all her songs, and even remember some of the steps. It was the best show I ever saw, and actually have not been able to see another show like that. I've seen Madonna or Cher live, but they can't compare with Liza and her voice. I saw her live years later here on my hometown, she is still great, but I think that this is her best concert ever.
