Grizabellas Unite! Liz Callaway & Elaine Paige Make A MemoryCelebrated Broadway stage star, recording artist and concert performer Liz Callaway is currently making her UK solo cabaret debut and she found some time to catch up with legendary West End diva supreme Elaine Paige while across the pond, making musical theatre history while doing so.

Of course, Paige famously originally essayed the role of Grizabella in Andrew Lloyd Webber's long-running mega-musical hit CATS, while Callaway clocked in years of performances in the role on Broadway.

Now, with the ladies sharing a shot at Callaway's cabaret gig this week, they have posed for a pic together, as well - at last.

Let the "Memory" live again!

Of note, Callaway will headline AN EVENING WITH Liz Callaway at London cabaret venue The Crazy Coqs now through February 1.

The remaining dates and times of the performances of AN EVENING WITH Liz Callaway in the UK are as follows: Thursday January 30th 8 PM; Friday January 31st 8 PM; Saturday February 1st 8 and 10:30 PM.

The official description of AN EVENING WITH Liz Callaway is as follows: "AN EVENING WITH Liz Callaway signals the London return of the major American concert and recording artist and will feature music by Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Maltby and Shire, Rodgers and Hammerstein, as well as by Jimmy Webb, Tony Hatch and others. "The most fascinating performer to come down the pike since the infant Bernadette Peters" is how critic Clive Barnes described Liz Callaway when she burst onto the Broadway scene over 25 years ago. Since then the Tony nominated and Emmy Award winning actress has gone on to star in numerous shows including Baby, Miss Saigon and Cats. She has also established a critically acclaimed career as a singer and recording artist. From New York to Sydney, Beijing to Paris, she has appeared in many of the world's greatest concert halls with several of the most famous symphony orchestras. She has also created a third career, as the singing voice in many notable animated movies including Beauty and the Beast, Lion King II and most especially as the title voice in the Oscar-nominated Anastasia. Finally, she performed the highly lauded Sibling Revelry in the US and here at the Donmar with her award-winning sister Ann Hampton Callaway, as well as the recently recorded, and now touring show, Boom!"
