Liza eyes tour, extension

Show bows tonight at Palace Theater

“Minnelli on Minnelli” opens tonight at the Palace Theater, and its producers and its star, Liza Minnelli, are already eyeing a possible 15-city tour and an extension of the Broadway run moving to the Gershwin Theater. A source close to the production said plans would be firmed up in the next few days.

“Tango Argentino,” the Gershwin’s current tenant, shutters Jan. 9. After a 24-performance stint, “Minnelli on Minnelli” is scheduled to close Jan. 1, and can be extended at the Palace only a few performances. Disney’s incoming Elton John-Tim Rice musical “Aida” takes up residence at the venerable venue in early January to ready for its first preview on Feb. 25.

“Minnelli on Minnelli,” a tribute to the movie musicals of Vincente Minnelli, set a house record for first-day phone sales at the Palace, taking in $436,845 on Oct. 25. With tickets ranging from $125 to $35, the show earned $435,280 in its first four previews last week. Its advance on opening day stands at $1.2 million.

The Fred Ebb-helmed show is being presented by Radio City Entertainment, LM concerts, Scott Nederlander and Stewart F. Lane.
