According to French news magazine Le Figaro, Broadway and Hollywood legend Liza Minnelli has inspired a new solo stage musical project and is firmly intending on taking it to the Great White Way in the next year.
Acclaimed French Armenia songwriter and performer Charles Aznavour – a frequent past and current onstage collaborator with Miss Minnelli – has penned a new musical monologue for the versatile star, featuring fifteen new tunes and a dramatically compelling original story that contains them all, the Broadway World reports, quoting Le Figaro.
The as-yet-untitled solo musical depicts a single day in the life of a woman as she recalls her past and looks back at her various experiences, ostensibly contemplating “the meaning of existence” all the while.
Reportedly, Minnelli has already agreed to star in the piece and proceeds to do so on Broadway in 2014. Nonetheless, no official confirmation on the project has been expressed at this time.
Aznavour and Minnelli previously co-starred most famously in AZNAVOUR & MINNELLI AU PALAIS DES CONGRES DE PARIS in 1992, while the triple-threat talent has performed countless Aznavour songs in recordings and in concert over the years.
In a recent interview, Liza Minnelli expounded upon her relationship with Aznavour. To read the interview visit http://broadwayworld.com/article/Liza-Minnelli-Coming-Back-To-Broadway-Aznavour-Pens-Solo-Show-20130515.
