Now it's official: The Cameri Theater in Tel Aviv has confirmed that diva Liza Minnelli will arrive in Israel to honor the Israeli version of the musical 'Cabaret' that premiered in the theater October 28.
Minnelli's arrival was confirmed on The Cameri's Facebook page, but the exact day of her arrival is yet to be revealed. Rumors are that the legendary actress will show up at the red carpet premiere of the musical, on November 11.
This is the second time that 'Cabaret' actually gets a Hebrew remake. The lead actress is Miki Kam, and she is joined by co-stars Aki Avni (whose resume includes guest starring in the hit American TV shows '24' and 'JAG') and model-turned-actor Itay Tiran.
The Cameri's statement that the date of Minnelli's arrival will be published soon comes in contradiction to Minnelli's official website, which states that "Contrary to media reports Liza Minnelli has no current plans to be in Israel this November. Her management team was not contacted by any Israeli promoters and has no knowledge whatsoever regarding any appearances in that country. "
