Stepping Out (Reprise) – Liza Minnelli
This is a song I’ve picked for the way it was staged on a Liza Minnelli’s concert rather than for the song itself, and this one features Liza at her best. No one can take the stage and make it their own the way Liza does.
Stepping Out was written by Kander and Ebb for the 1991 movie of the same name. The film, based on the play of the same name, starred Liza, along with Julie Waters, Jane Krakowski, Bill Irwin, Andrea Martin, and Shelley Winters, among others. The film wasn’t successful, and it found its way onto VHS very soon. A year later, Minnelli used it as the centrepiece for her Radio Music City Hall Concerts.
