Minnelli cameo will be a smash
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.
