Minnelli Tickets Priced at $125
Oct. 21, 1999
NEW YORK (AP) _ Liza Minnelli will play Broadway's Palace Theater in December for 24 performances _ and she won't come cheap.
The top ticket price will be $125.
Her show, ``Minnelli on Minnelli,'' will salute her father, Vincent Minnelli, who directed the classic musicals ``Meet Me in St. Louis'' and ``An American in Paris.'' The show will be written and directed by Fred Ebb, who wrote the lyrics for ``Chicago'' and ``Cabaret.'' It opens Dec. 1.
The 53-year-old Ms. Minnelli, plagued in recent years by voice and weight problems, said she has gone into rigorous training for the engagement after operations on her throat and her hip.
``I think everybody should get healthy again _ so I'm doing everything,'' she said. ``I never, ever performed because I wouldn't. I couldn't. But I can now.''
