Seth Sikes will return to Feinstein’s/54 Below with Seth Sikes Sings Liza Minnelli, an evening of Minnelli’s most popular songs, March 12, the legendary entertainer’s 70th birthday.

“I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate our greatest living legend’s birthday, through her incredible music,” said Sikes. “I’ll be singing some of Liza’s signature tunes along with some little known gems.”

The March 12 show sold out months in advance.

While Minnelli will not be present she told Playbill exclusively, “I hear that Seth is wonderful so I am sorry to miss it but if he has half as much fun as I have singing these songs then he’s in for quite a ride.”
