Due to the response, Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming have agreed to a second show to be added Thursday March 14th at Town Hall, NYC.
 
This is a transfer of their two sold-out shows in Fire Island's historic Ice Palace nightclub which the New York Times called "the biggest cultural event on Fire Island this Summer."  Everyone who missed out on the biggest installment of Nardicio's Fire Island Icon Series will see why the crowd were on their feet after every song and chanting both Liza and Alan's names. 

Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming have a lot in common. The two theatrical powerhouses act, sing and are both are closely identified with the musical "Cabaret." Liza famously won an Academy Award for the movie version and Alan won a Tony Award for the acclaimed Broadway revival. 

These incomparable stars will duet on familiar songs from "Cabaret"  and Liza will dip into her repertoire of signature songs known the world over. Alan will perform his renditions of songs –  from Annie Lennox to his own original songs. These two old friends will also interact on stage together—sharing stories, songs, and banter— of their adventures in life and show-business. 

Nardicio says: "It had always surprised me that no producer had thought to put these two long time friends on stage together- considering their consummate performing skills, their history with "Cabaret" and their friendship. It's a no-brainer. That's what people saw on the stage on Fire Island- two good friends having fun. I dare say that this show is a celebration of friendship in general." And all under the musical direction of Emmy winning composer Lance Horne.
 
 Tickets are $110 -150.
