Tony nominee Liz Callaway, who made her Broadway debut in the original production of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along, will celebrate the late composer-lyricist next year at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Callaway will present her acclaimed tribute to Sondheim, To Steve With Love, January 20, 2024, in the Terrace Theater.
To Steve With Love: Liz Callaway Celebrates Sondheim, which Callaway debuted at 54 Below, is also the title of the Broadway favorite's eighth solo recording, which recently received a Grammy Award nomination. Written by Callaway and Dan Foster and directed by Foster, the album features musical direction and arrangements by Alex Rybeck. Nicholas Callaway Foster is a guest singer on the recording, produced by Emmy winner Michael J. Moritz Jr and Liz Callaway.
Callaway previously told Playbill, "I fell in love with Sondheim
music when I was 10 years old, when my parents took me to see my first
Broadway show, Company. I brought home the cast album and
memorized every song. Little did I know that his music would become part
of my DNA. I’ll always be grateful to Steve for taking a chance on me,
for his guidance, and for giving me 'so much stuff to sing!'”
Callaway received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Baby, and was also seen on Broadway in Cats, Miss Saigon, The Three Musketeers, and The Look of Love. Other New York appearances include Follies in Concert at Lincoln Center, A Stephen Sondheim Evening, Encores! Fiorello, and Hair in Concert. She sang the Academy Award-nominated “Journey to the Past” in the animated feature Anastasia. Other film work includes Jasmine in the two Aladdin sequels; The Swan Princess; and The Rewrite with Hugh Grant.
