Mother of All Shows
In order for Liza to cope with the impending death of her estranged mother, she retreats to a 70’s variety show in her mind where the all-powerful host is Liza’s own mother, Rosa, played by Wendie Malick, who leads a cast of people from Liza’s past and present, all a jumble in her mind. In Liza’s head, Rosa appears as the host of a 70s variety show with all the bravado and pizazz of Phyllis Diller, Bea Arthur, and Rosemary Clooney. Rosa sings, and dances, and yuks it up, all in Liza’s imagination; the moments of their lives playing out in sketches and song, since they can’t seem to connect at all in reality without the conversation blowing up or falling apart.
