“Liza is a total entertainer, a show person the likes of which is hard to find these days. Liza’s talents have known no bounds, and her contribution to Broadway, film, and even a hilarious stint on television’s Arrested Development make her so deserving of this, a glorious celebration of her 75 years on earth,” said producer Daniel Nardicio. “I’m thrilled to be able to do this for Liza, and for her friends and fans in a safe, socially distant way to say we all love you Liza—Happy Birthday, Darling!”

A portion of ticket sales will go to The Actors Fund, the national human services organization for everyone in performing arts and entertainment.

Joining Nardicio on the producing team are Samuel Benedict and Club Cumming, with Matt Berman co-producing.

Repeat airings will take place March 13 and 14 on Steller Video on Demand. Tickets, priced $30, are available here.
