Liza Minnelli All Star 75th Birthday Tribute Special With Joel Grey, Chita Rivera to Stream March 12th


Liza Minnelli is turning 75, how do you like that?

For her 75th Birthday,  Liz will get an all star virtual celebration called “Love Letter to Liza: A 75th Birthday Tribute Celebration,” on  Friday, March 12 at 8:00 PM EST on the streaming platform Stellar.

It looks like Alan Cumming, who starred in “Cabaret” a generation after Minnelli made the show her signature hit. is one of the producers.

The show features this list of stars, and, I assume, Liza’s singing sister, Lorna Luft. Look at this list of people who will perform and give tributes:

 Joel Grey, Lily Tomlin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Chita Rivera, Joan Collins, Harry Connick, Jr., Ben Vereen and the dancers from the Verdon-Fosse Legacy, Ute Lemper, Billy Stritch, Charles Busch, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lea Delaria, Jim Caruso, Jonathan Groff, Sandra Bernhard, Andrew Rannells, Nathan Lane, Mario Cantone, Tony Hale, Coco Peru, John Cameron Mitchell, Michele Lee,  Andrea Martin, Seth Sikes, Neil Meron, and more.

Tickets, priced at $30.00, are now available at stellartickets.com and clubcummingnyc.com.       

 “Liza is a total entertainer, a show person the likes of which is hard to find these days. Liza’s talents have known no bounds, and her contribution to Broadway, film and even a hilarious stint on television’s “Arrested Development,” make her so deserving of this, a glorious celebration of her 75 years on Earth, said producer Daniel Nardicio. “I’m thrilled to be able to do this for Liza, and for her friends and fans in a safe, socially distant way to say we all love you Liza—Happy Birthday Darling!”

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to The Actors Fund, the national human services organization for everyone in performing arts and entertainment. Through offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, The Fund serves everyone in film, theater, television, music, opera, radio and dance with programs including social services and emergency financial assistance, health care and insurance counseling, housing, and secondary employment and training services.


In addition to the March 12 showing, repeat airings will take place on March 13 and 14 on Stellar Video on Demand.
