Callaway was the first person granted permission by Cole Porter's estate to write music for a previously unrecorded Porter lyric, "I Gaze In Your Eyes." In 2000, she earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Swing!
CSC executive director Jessica R. Jenen first worked with Callaway in 2000 during Swing!

"It's truly an honor to present her in this very intimate evening, and Brian Kulick, CSC's artistic director, and I are tremendously grateful that she has agreed to help us in our fundraising efforts. It's going to be one of those incredibly special evenings not to be missed."
