Before Lady Gaga, before Madonna, there was the legendary Liza with a Z! Vivacious and full of energy at the age of 66, Liza Minnelli promises to delight and entertain again and again. Her current Confessions tour takes audiences on a thrill-ride retrospective of her gloriously tumultuous career with performances including familiar and iconic hits like ''Here I'll Stay,'' ''I Can't Give You Anything But Love,'' ''Cabaret'' and ''New York, New York.'' Audiences can also expect emotionally raw performances when she explores her relationship with songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb in addition to her grief over the recent passing of Marvin Hamlisch, a creative associate and close friend. Despite the Grand 1894 Opera House's size, it maintains a fabulous intimacy, which should suit Minnelli and her diminutive six-piece orchestra perfectly.
