Liza’s ‘Palace’ to get TV reprise

Tony-winning production to be filmed in Vegas

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are among the exec producers of a filmed version of Liza Minnelli’s recent Broadway show, “Liza’s at the Palace,” to be aired on public television later this year.

“Liza’s at the Palace,” which played Broadway last December and picked up a Tony for special theatrical event, will be filmed during reprise performances set for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 in Las Vegas at the Hollywood Theater in the MGM Grand.

Matthew Diamond (“So You Think You Can Dance”) will helm, with Zadan, Meron and JoAnn Young — producer of “Johnny Mathis Live: Wonderful, Wonderful!” among other specials, as well as a writer of “Broadway: The American Musical” — exec producing.

“Liza’s at the Palace” includes performances of the singer-thesp’s signature numbers as well as a tribute to Kay Thompson, the performer, writer, musical director, arranger and vocal coach who was Minnelli’s godmother.

Pianist-singer Billy Stritch also appears, reprising his Rialto duties as musical director. Backing quartet of Cortes Alexander, Jim Caruso, Johnny Rodgers and Tiger Martina also return.

American Public Television will distribute “Liza’s at the Palace” in December, with the special to be released on DVD by MPI Home Video in early 2010.

Show is a co-production of Jubilee Time Prods., American Public Television, HDNET and Young Prods., in cooperation with the MGM Grand.

Zadan and Meron, exec producers of the screen version of “Chicago” and producers on the “Hairspray” pic, previously presented the digitally restored version of “Liza with a Z” seen on Showtime. They’re also attached to a potential Broadway revival of tuner “Promises, Promises.”
