After a calamitous tryout tour, the John Kander and Fred Ebb musical The Act opened at the Majestic Theatre October 30, 1977. Liza Minnelli starred in the lead role, which won her the 1978 Tony Award as Best Actress in a Musical. The show, which told the story of a nightclub singer recalling her rocky romantic and professional life, ran 233 performances.
