“City Lights” – The Act

Music: John Kander   Lyrics: Fred Ebb

Has-been actress Michelle Craig sings of how she misses the city lights during this portion of her Las Vegas show in this musical which was fashioned as a star vehicle for the one and only Liza Minnelli.  A similar pang of loss was felt on this day in 2013 when the biggest power outage occurred in U.S. history, a blackout which left millions pining for those city lights.
