Callaway — who will star in the upcoming revue of the songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, The Look of Love — will sing in concert at the Winter Garden on Monday, March 3 at 6:30 PM. Callaway is expected to sing tunes from her sixties recording, "The Beat Goes On," which features such classics as "You Don't Own Me," "Frank Mills," "Monday, Monday," "Moon River" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Callaway's concert is free and open to the public. Callaway made her Broadway debut in the original cast of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along, and she also took part in the recent anniversary concert of that musical. For her work in the short-lived musical Baby, she received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and her other Broadway credits include The Three Musketeers, Miss Saigon and Cats. With her sister Ann Hampton Callaway, she created "Sibling Revelry," an acclaimed cabaret act that the duo continue to showcase around the country.
On Wednesday, March 5 at 6:30 PM acclaimed cabaret singer Mary Cleere Haran will perform a free evening of Gershwin tunes. The regal performer will be accompanied on piano by her long-time musical director, Richard Rodney Bennett. Described by The New York Times as "the most literature chanteuse of her generation," Haran has performed in some of the top cabaret venues around the country as well as in the original Broadway cast of The 1940's Radio Hour and the Off-Broadway companies of The Heebie Jeebies and Hollywood Opera. Her numerous recordings include "There's a Small Hotel: Live at the Algonquin," "This Heart of Mine: Classic Movie Songs of the 40s," "This Funny World: Lyrics by Hart" and "Pennies From Heaven."
