Liza Minnelli Re-Visited Cabaret For Her 67th Birthday

Beloved actress Liza Minnelli celebrated her 67th in style.

The Broadway veteran didn’t just have a party like any old celebrity, she marked the occasion with a special one-off performance alongside another staple of the Big White Way, Alan Cumming. The pair performed a number of famous duets on Wednesday, before dashing off to celebrate elsewhere. The show, which was just the first of a pair of gigs at NY Town Hall, reprised Liza and Alan’s cabaret-like performance at a Fire Island nightclub last summer.

Of course, the infamous Cabaret was performed (making us musical theatre fans extremely jealous of the ticket holders) and the entire show turned into a Cabaret reunion of sorts. But this time, the roles were reversed, as Cumming took on Liza’s part in Mein Herr, which is one of the best-known numbers Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) performs in the original musical, while she herself sang the traditionally male Willkommen. Overall, the night was a lot of fun for both fans and performers. "We're just crazy about each other," Minnelli told Reuters after the show. "It felt very intimate, like being with a bunch of friends." After the intimate performance, Liza managed to out-party any of her younger colleagues, alongside a group of close friends at New York’s Copacabana.
