It’s not quite a performance from a hospital bed, but pretty darn close. Feisty singer Pia Zadora has a miracle return to her cabaret shows at Piero’s this weekend a few months after serious injuries sustained when her golf cart overturned.
The outlook was so grim that friends predicted she’d be laid up for at least six months. She’s still on crutches and with a walking boot — bejeweled, of course. She performs Friday and Saturday, takes off Thanksgiving and then resumes weekends for the remainder of the year and adds a New Year’s Eve show.
Pia’s musical director Vincent Falcone and their band have added holiday songs, and Santa will drop by for “Jingle Bell Rock.” Don’t expect any high kicks or fast foxtrots from Pia, but even if she remains seated to sing, it is a marvelous recovery. Bravo!
Singer and actress Pia Zadora performs during a guest stint in “Million Dollar Quartet” on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, at Harrah’s.
