Event Description

Liz Callaway is a terrific cabaret and concert artist, who earned her chops on Broadway, Off Broadway (where she received a Drama Desk nomination for her performance in The Spitfire Grill), and in regional theatre across the country. She made her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Baby, and for five years, won acclaim as Grizabella in Cats. She has also starred in the original casts of Miss Saigon, The Three Musketeers, and The Look of Love.

The tensile strength and skilled nuance of Miss Callaway’s warm, expressive soprano has established her as a major concert and recording artist. The award-winning Sibling Revelry (created with sister Ann Hampton Callaway) was presented to great acclaim at the Donmar Warehouse in London. Boom!, a celebration of the music of the 60’s and 70’s, also created with her sister was recorded live at Birdland and has toured the country. She has shared the stage with legendary artists Johnny Mathis, Jimmy Webb & Paul Williams, Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder. Her extensive symphony work includes appearances at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and countless venues across the globe. Miss Callaway has released six solo recordings including her newest album The Essential Liz Callaway, along with numerous other recordings.

Miss Callaway has lent her full, yet sensitive, singing voice to film as well, including singing the Academy Award nominated song “Journey to the Past” in the animated feature Anastasia. She is the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin Trilogy, among other children’s classics. An Emmy Award winner for “Ready to Go”, a daily, live children’s program in Boston, her other TV credits include “In Performance at the White House,” “Inside the Actor’s Studio: Stephen Sondheim, Christmas with the Boston Pops,” and “The David Letterman Show.”
