My Favorite Broadway: The Leading Ladies
- Filmed Performance
- Carnegie Hall NY
This film presents highlights of a concert given on 28 September 1998 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Some of the ladies offer songs with which they have been closely associated over the years, while others explore the road not taken. There are also a couple of stunts: Rosie O'Donnell sneaks onto the stage and begins singing Liza With a Z, only to be interrupted by Liza Minnelli, for whom the song was written. Later, the child actress Anna Kendrick sings Life Upon the Wicked Stage, backed up by a chorus of cynical, strung-out Kit-Kat Girls from the 1990's revival of Cabaret. Their fate, apparently, is what young Miss Kendrick can look forward to should she remain in her chosen profession!
