In 1972, an amazing amalgam of talent came together for a TV special. The show, Liza With A Z, was actually a live concert created for television, starring the irrepressible Liza Minnelli, written and co-produced by Fred Ebb, and directed, choreographed and co-produced by the legendary Bob Fosse. The show went on to win four Emmy awards, 2 for Choreography and Direction for Fosse, one for John Kander & Fred Ebb for Music and Lyrics, and one for the show as Outstanding Variety Program. The concert was staged with filming in mind, and was stamped all over with Fosse's imprint. There was no real story to speak of, more of a live concert, with eleven production numbers. Here are four of them.
