Broadway besties Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming have already crooned together in concert, but could the dynamic duo bring their show to Broadway? That’s the latest rumor, according to a report from Out that alleges that the pair may bring their act to the Marquis Theatre for a 12-performance run in December.
The kindred Cabaret spirits recently performed two concerts at Town Hall in March, in which they swapped numbers from the Kander and Ebb classic that earned Minnelli an Oscar and Cumming a Tony. The duo first performed the double act, which also featured some of Minnelli’s beloved hits and an eclectic selection from Cumming, on Fire Island in the summer of 2012.
According to Out, the concert would arrive at the Marquis just in time for the holidays, with musical direction by Billy Stritch (Liza’s at the Palace…) and Lance Horne (Little Women).
Broadway fans most recently caught Minnelli playing herself in the second season of Smash; she also reprised her role as the vertigo-stricken Lucille Austero in Netflix’s reboot of Arrested Development. Cumming, meanwhile, recently completed a run in his mostly solo production of Macbeth. The Broadway.com video blogger will next appear in the forthcoming revival of Cabaret, reprising his Tony-winning role as the Emcee.
