Liza with a Z!
Showtime is premiering the remastered TV concert from 1972, Liza with a Z. I don't subscribe to this channel but luckily this is a free preview weekend. I didn't even realize that this concert was on DVD. I remember bringing the soundtrack album for this concert to music class when I was in elementary school. That was when I got my first inkling that it might be odd for a nine-year-old to like show tunes, especially a black one. For those of you who were born after 1979 and your only image of Liza Minnelli is the bloated and slurring has-been, this DVD is a necessary rental. She really knew how to put on a show.
