Customers who bought this item also bought
The full two-hour performance of Liza Minnelli's 2009 Tony Award-winning concert, LIZA'S AT THE PALACE, is available only on this special collector's edition. This exciting midnight performance was recorded at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on October 1, 2009.
Act One features favorite songs by Ms. Minnelli, including Cabaret, Maybe This Time, What Makes a Man a Man, and My Own Best Friend. A first act highlight is Liza's special rendition of the Palace Medley, originally sung by her mother, Judy Garland, at the Palace Theatre in 1951. Liza adds a new personal musical introduction to the fond remembrance of famous vaudevillians. Act Two is very special tribute to Liza's godmother, Kay Thompson, a groundbreaking singer-dancer, songwriter, and vocal arranger/coach at the MGM studios in the 1940 s.

I may have even thought I may be witnessing a train wreck when I picked up this disc, but when I put it in my player....
Unlike some of the other reviews I'm not going to discuss her vocal range and timber...although I have many years in the music business and have produced nearly 100 albums. I would like to stress the "entertainment" factor which I find to be off the chart on this project and I found her performance galvanizing!!!
The production values are thankfully first class but its the sheer power and electricity of her performance that put this over the top and make me glad I picked it up. The ultimate compliment I can make where any live/performance DVD is concerned is that it makes me sad I didn't go see the actual tour of the artist and I absolutely would have enjoyed this night. Even though I am not familiar with much of the material she performs ,it didn't really matter, which again just shows how compelling she is. Sometimes vocalists with great gifts fall back on their perfect instrument and don't really engage the audience and sometimes an artist whose instrument isn't what it used to be chooses to dial up the energy to compensate and that might be what we have...but she sings the (you know what) out of every tune and between songs uses her charm and acting chops to keep the audience riveted.
Any fan of hers I would imagine should love this and those who wish to nitpick about her upper register probably can't see the forest for the trees!
BUT if you are not in a Region A zone, this disc will not play. Unlike some other BD's I have purchased (PASSAGE TO INDIA, SOUTH PACIFIC etc), this one was spat out by both my Samsung and Panasonic players.
I'm sure it's a great performance, but I'll have to take the word of the other reviewers! OVERSEAS BUYER BEWARE.
It's curious that the DVD is more expensive than the BD! Should have bit the bullet and kept on the safe side!
