“My mother gave me my drive but my father gave me my dreams.”
Liza with her parents, Judy Garland and Vincent Minnelli
I love Liza Minnelli; she may not be the best singer or the best dancer, but, WOW, is she an entertainer and gives her all when on stage. Years ago, in 1984, I was fortunate enough to see her on Broadway in a lousy show, “The Rink,” also starring the wonderful Chita Rivera. Liza Minnelli has known her share of heartaches, misfortunes, drama, illness, but she perseveres and she triumphs. I could watch “Cabaret” over and over and she never fails to amaze.
One of my favorite songs from that movie is “Maybe This Time.” Take a listen!
