NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Liza Minnelli didn’t let a broken wrist stand in the way of her first performance with her sister in 20 years.

A spokesman for the 67-year-old entertainer said she performed Monday night with a broken wrist at a benefit concert in New York.

Minnelli broke her wrist in three places while rehearsing at home Sunday.

The “Cabaret” star performed with her half-sister, Lorna Luft, for the first time since their duet at the 1993 Tony Awards.

Minnelli returned to the hospital for further treatment immediately after the performance at the jazz club Birdland benefiting the Women’s Health Initiative and the Dr. Philomena McAndrew Fund of Tower Cancer Research Foundation.
