Liza Minnelli was welcomed back to Toronto by a friendly crowd at Roy Thomson Hall on Oct 28.
The singing and acting legend’s performance in Cabaret won her an Academy Award for Best Actress. She has also won Grammy, Tony and Emmy awards.
Her storied past of love and loss made for some comedic moments, as when she introduced a song from Chicago sung by Roxie Heart, who was charged with murdering her husband.
Minnelli, whose mother was Judy Garland, continues to draw in the gay crowd.
