“We are delighted to welcome Liz Callaway back to The York,” said Jim Morgan, York’s Producing Artistic Director. “Liz is a longtime friend of the company and made her York debut in 1987 with Sondheim’s Marry Me a Little, co-starring John Jellison. In 2020, she appeared in An Evening with Sheldon Harnick, and she’s performed with us in any number of Oscar Hammerstein Galas and developmental readings. With the estimable Alex Rybeck at the piano, Their Story Goes On promises to be a spectacular evening, covering Liz’s personal relationships with all sorts of writers who have been associated with The York, including Sondheim, Ahrens and Flaherty, Schwartz, Maltby and Shire, and many more. We look forward to seeing you there!”

Tony Award nominee, Emmy winner and newly minted Grammy nominee Liz Callaway made her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along. She went on to star in Baby, Miss Saigon, The Look of Love, and The Three Musketeers, as well as five years as Grizabella in Cats. Off-Broadway appearances include The Spitfire Grill (Drama Desk nomination), Marry Me a Little (at The York), and Brownstone. Regional and international credits include the one-person play Every Brilliant Thing, Dot in Sunday in the Park with George, Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, and the European premiere of Sondheim on Sondheim at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Liz sang the Academy Award-nominated song “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. Her extensive concert and symphony career has included appearances in London, Paris, Vietnam, Australia, China, and nearly every major city in the U.S. She performs regularly with her sister Ann Hampton Callaway, as well as composer Stephen Schwartz, and has had the pleasure of singing with Jimmy Webb, Paul Williams, and the legendary Johnny Mathis. The Grammy-nominated To Steve With Love: Liz Callaway Celebrates Sondheim marks her eighth solo recording. www.lizcallaway.com @LizGoesOn

The York Theatre Company, “Where Musicals Come to Life,” is the only theatre in New York City—and one of very few in the world—dedicated to developing and fully producing new musicals and preserving notable shows from the past. For over five decades, York’s intimate, imaginative style of producing both original and classic musicals has resulted in critical acclaim and recognition from artists and audiences alike. Under the guidance of Producing Artistic Director James Morgan since 1997, The York has focused on new musicals in its Mainstage Series—most of them world, American, or New York premieres—by some of the field’s most esteemed creators and has also helped launch the careers of many talented new writers. Over 45 cast recordings from York Theatre Company productions are now available, including its acclaimed revival of Closer Than Ever (2013 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Revival). Commercial transfers of such York premieres as The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), Souvenir (Tony Award Nomination for actress Judy Kaye), and Jolson & Company, and revivals of Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd (four Tony Nominations including Best Revival) have all showcased the importance of The York and its programs.
