Performance – UA Dance Presents 'On Stage With Liz Callaway'
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 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, performing in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.
