How often do you get to meet up with a younger version of yourself? Liza Minnelli’s new CD, Liza Minnelli: Live at the Wintergarten, was recorded in 1974 but legal disputes kept it off the market until now. The 66-year-old daughter of Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli is touring with a new show, Confessions.
What has changed in 40 years?
“My voice seems lower, which is better.”
Do you watch music shows on TV?
“I love Smash. It would be fun to guest-star. They’ve done what my father did in Meet Me in St. Louis. Before then, every song in a show had to be on the stage. St. Louis took that boundary away, and Cabaret [for which Liza won an Oscar] brought it back into the theater. Smash is right in between.”
What lessons did you learn from your parents?
“Having a sense of humor and being curious are what it’s all about.”
How old do you feel?
“110 (laughs). Right before I go on stage, I feel about 33.”
