Bridgette must find a way to cut some of the razzle-dazzle without offending her superstar guest and get what the show wants. "My approach when I have to handle a situation like telling Liza Minnelli, 'We want to do it our way' is kind of pretending she's not Liza Minnelli because ultimately I'm here to get the best product for the show," she says. "So we're going to have to keep ironing this out."
After another rehearsal, the three songs have been squeezed into three and a half minutes. "I'm feeling good," Bridgette says. "She seemed happy when she left, so I think all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together."
