Liza Minnelli to guest on ‘Smash’

Star to play herself on second-season episode

The Queen of Broadway is heading to “Smash.”

Liza Minnelli will appear as herself in a season two episode of the NBC drama titled “The Surprise Party.” Minnelli sings an original song with series star Christian Borle.

“Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multitalented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway,” said Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. “So what could be more fitting than to have her legendary talent on a show that celebrates a world Liza has dazzled for decades?

“I had the pleasure of working with Liza when we restored her landmark television special ‘Liza With a Z’ at Showtime, and to see her artistry up close and personal is a thing to behold.”

Minnelli joins a slew of other guest stars lined up for the second season of “Smash,” including Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin and Sean Hayes.

“Smash” returns to NBC on Feb. 5.
