The evening, featuring the Tony-nominated actor, was filmed at the Bedford Playhouse.

Tony nominee Liz Callaway will offer Home for the Holidays, a concert recorded at New York's Bedford Playhouse, beginning December 11. The production will be available to stream through December 19, with proceeds going to a variety of regional venues around the country affected by the COVID-19 shutdown.

Audiences can expect a mix of holiday favorites and showtunes, stories about Callaway’s holiday traditions and career, and music from her new album, Comfort and Joy–An Acoustic Christmas (on which she's accompanied by neighbor and guitarist Peter Calo). Watch a preview of the evening above.

“Like so many other arts organizations who are struggling around the world, we have adapted our approach to serve our community through virtual programming,” said Bedford Playhouse Executive Director Michael Hoagland. “When this opportunity came up to produce original content with Liz Callaway, we instantly said, ‘Yes!’ It’s been a particularly hard year for the theatre industry, and we hope that by partnering with Ms. Callaway and our fellow theatres, we can provide a little joy to audiences across the country this holiday season.”

"I'm both happy and grateful to be appearing in this concert," added Callaway. "Grateful for the chance to get out of the house and sing onstage in a beautiful theatre, and happy to be supporting the wonderful theatres and performing arts centers taking part in this venture—I've had the pleasure of performing at many of these venues; in fact, I received my equity card at one of them many, many, years ago. Happy holidays!"

Callaway made her Broadway debut in Merrily We Roll Along, received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Baby, and was also seen 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.
