Special Birthday Episode Features Interview With the Star, and Birthday Greetings From Carol Burnett, Bruce Vilanch, Tony Danza, and Carol Channing
NEW YORK, NY–(MARKET WIRE)–Mar 15, 2005 — BroadwayWorld.com, the premiere theatre site on the net is proud to present a sit-down interview with Liza Minnelli, on the occasion of her birthday, conducted by host Jim Caruso. In this one-on-one chat recorded in the music room of her Manhattan penthouse, Liza discusses professional influences, beloved music, Broadway memories and the joy and curse of celebrity. Scattered throughout the show are rare recordings of Minnelli performances, along with a few surprise birthday greetings from famous pals like Carol Burnett, Bruce Vilanch, Tony Danza, and Carol Channing. Drama Desk Award-winning vocal group Toxic Audio personalizes a song for the birthday girl, too. The listener is privy to a comfortable chat between two friends; unguarded, topical and dishy. Here’s what Liza has to say…
On growing up in Hollywood: “LA was the most boring place in the world! The whole town did one thing. It was like growing up in a mining town if your parents were miners.”
On performing a song: “I create a character. I know what color hair she has, what part of the country she lives in, and what the decals on her refrigerator look like.”
On her wacky role on TV’s “Arrested Development”: “I don’t think people know I have a good sense of humor about myself. It’s great fun to take the mickey out of myself!”
On pop music: “At the moment I’m entranced by Maroon 5. I also like Los Lonely Boys. I’ve got their records…I mean CD’s. Oh please don’t play that I said ‘records!’ Like I watch them on 16 millimeter…”
