Storyline

This film presents highlights of a concert given on 28 September 1998 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Some of the ladies offer songs with which they have been closely associated over the years, while others explore the road not taken. There are also a couple of stunts: Rosie O'Donnell sneaks onto the stage and begins singing "Liza With a Z," only to be interrupted by Liza Minnelli, for whom the song was written. Later, the child actress Anna Kendrick sings "Life Upon the Wicked Stage," backed up by a chorus of cynical, strung-out Kit-Kat Girls from the 1990's revival of "Cabaret." Their fate, apparently, is what young Miss Kendrick can look forward to should she remain in her chosen profession! Written by RK

LINDA EDER ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6 October 2001 | by EderFan1See all my reviews

If you want to hear the best voice in the entire world see The Leading Ladies of Broadway and listen to Linda Eder sing! Get the original Broadway cast recording of Jekyll and Hyde. She plays Lucy in it and she is AMAZING! And get the CD's called "It's Time" and "It's No Secret Anymore" to hear more of Linda's AWESOME voice! YEA LINDA!!!! And the other stuff on this video is good too if you like Broadway. I LOVE Broadway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
