Get ready for a taste of Cabaret, a slice of Broadway, the gusto of George Gershwin, and the elegance of Steven Sondheim. You will be swept away by the songbird that is Liz Callaway.
A Tony nominee and Emmy Award-winning actress, singer and recording artist, Liz Callaway 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. Other New York appearances include the legendary Follies in Concert at Lincoln Center, A Stephen Sondheim Evening, Fiorello! (Encores!), and Hair in Concert.
Also familiar to you will be Liz singing the Academy Award nominated song “Journey to the Past” in the animated feature Anastasia. You may have heard Liz as the voice of Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin and the King of Thieves and The Return of Jafar. Other film work includes the singing voice of the title character in Beauty and the Beast, The Swan Princess, and The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.
Liz Callaway is a long-time friend and guest artist for UA Dance, and helped us celebrate both the opening of Stevie Eller Dance Theatre and the five-year anniversary gala. Once again, the UA Dance Ensemble will perform with Ms. Callaway in selected numbers during the second half of a show that will include Michael Williams’ Bon Appetite and the very profound and final work that David Berkey created for UA Dance, a female solo titled Unicorn.
On Stage with Liz Callaway is an unusual opportunity to see and hear the talent of this international star who, in addition to recording six solo albums, has traveled the world, concertizing in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Significant theaters in the United States include The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Ravinia, and The Hollywood Bowl. In 2020, from February 13 – 16, she’ll be at Stevie Eller Dance Theatre in Tucson! You should join her…
