NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Liza Minnelli knows how to put on a show, but the stage queen isn’t planning a big bash for New Year’s Eve.
“Not really,” the Broadway legend said when Access Hollywood asked her on the “Smash” set if she had big plans for December 31. “No, I’ve had it with New Year’s (laughs).”
While she won’t be ringing in 2013 with a bang, she will be making a splash on “Smash,” which is gearing up to return for Season 2 in February.
Liza’s episode won’t air until late on in the spring, but she has been indulging in being around the “Smash” talent.
“It’s fun because I admire all of the people. And the directors are wonderful, and all the stars in this are just great, aren’t they? I have great fun watching it,” she told Access. “I’m a fan of the show.”
There’s another show Liza will be in in 2013 – “Arrested Development” – which will premiere its fourth season on Netflix. (She plays Buster’s cougar girlfriend, Lucille.)
“We finished shooting,” she said. “It’s really good… It’s fun to do.”
The “Smash” Season 2 premiere airs February 5 at 9/8c on NBC.
