Min­nelli cameo will be a smash

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

EN­TER­TAINER Liza Min­nelli (pic­tured) will make a guest ap­pear­ance on hit US mu­sic drama Smash. The TV show re­volves around the cre­ation of a Broad­way mu­si­cal. Pro­duc­ers have re­cruited real-life the­atre icon Min­nelli to star and per­form an orig­i­nal song with ac­tor Chris­tian Borle dur­ing an episode called The Sur­prise Party, which will air next year. ‘‘Liza Min­nelli is the essence of a mul­ti­tal­ented, sin­gu­lar show busi­ness sen­sa­tion, par­tic­u­larly for her ex­tra­or­di­nary con­tri­bu­tions to Broad­way,’’ says ex­ec­u­tive Robert Green­blatt. ‘‘What could be more fit­ting than to have her leg­endary tal­ent on a show that cel­e­brates a world Liza has daz­zled for decades?’’ Min­nelli is not the only celebrity to fea­ture in sea­son two. Os­car-win­ner Jen­nifer Hudson also joins the cast.

Smash: Tuesdays, 10.30pm, Seven, Prime7.
