When I saw Cabaret with Joel Gray and Liza Minnelli. Also when I saw Pippin with Ben Vereen.
I wonder if everyone is following the news from the Broadway Awards season that is ramping up at the moment. Word just came through that The Fred Astaire Awards (which are exclusively to honour achievements in dance each year) are giving their Outstanding Achievement in the Preservation of Musical Theatre Award to "legendary dancer and dance instructor Luigi"! They say, "Born Eugene Louis Faccuito in Steubenville, Ohio and nicknamed Luigi from Gene Kelly, as a dancer he appeared in over 40 films including An American in Paris, Annie Get Your Gun, On the Town, Singin' in the Rain, The Band Wagon and White Christmas. The exercise routine he created for his own rehabilitation after a devastating accident became the world's first complete technique for learning jazz dance. His students have included Liza Minnelli, Ben Vereen, Tony Roberts and Susan Stroman. " We could add, "and Pounder". Some nice timing, hey? I reckon she'd be delighted.
2 of my Favorite New York Christmas Memories... 1st - Working at 55th & 2nd Ave at The Manhattan Art and Antique Center for a Gallery named Geneva Galleries/I would walk to Bloomingdales to take the subway home after work. One day at Christmas I was looking in the Christmas Window and Liza Minnelli was standing next to me. I said Hi and she was very kind and asked me to walk through the store with her and I told her about the time we met at the Plaza Hotel when I was 15 yrs. old. She was having dinner next to me, we were in the Blue Room watching Ben Vereen doing a Dance Performance and she gave me her autograph. 2nd - Living at 27th & 2nd Ave, taking the 29th & 3rd Subway to the Upper East Side to the Armory at Christmas to buy our Christmas Trees. They would Wrap them up in Netting and I would Drag the Big Tree back to the Subway and travel with it in the Subway back to the 29th and 3rd Station then Drag it a few Blocks back to 27th & 2nd. Beautiful Trees are worth the Effort!
Celebrating another Birthday in advance & went to see Ben Vereen @ the Smith Center. Had not seen him since Linda Hopkins & I saw him at the Palace in New York years ago. Whether he's dancing with Liza Minnelli or doing Pippin he seems to never age...Keep up the fun!
