For the fans of Misha and musicals
23 January 2001 | by Trinity-66See all my reviews

If you add Mikhail Baryshnikov's dancing to Liza Minelli's singing what do you get? In this case, a 'Best of Broadway musicals', sort of... I liked it, but then, I'm biased because I've been a Baryshnikov fan for as long as I can remember. In this show the biggest Broadway dance numbers get the ballet treatment, but Misha also shows he can handle the lighter stuff. Remember: this was way before Baryshnikov's knees gave out and way before Liza started going the way of her mother.
