NEW YORK (Reuters) - By merely striding onto a stage, Liza Minnelli transformed a Manhattan concert hall into a cabaret on Wednesday, as the legendary entertainer teamed up with Broadway veteran Alan Cumming for the first night of a two-night gig reprising a show the pair put on last summer at a Fire Island nightclub.
"Liza coming to Fire Island - can you imagine? It was like a papal visit," Cumming said, recalling the friends' two shows that spawned the sold out shows at Town Hall on Wednesday and Thursday.
