Photo Flash: Ann Hampton Callaway Plays 54 Below!
For the first time in New York City, Platinum Award-winning singer-songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway celebrates the music of one of America’s most powerful and enduring musical artists, Ann Hampton Callaway, Sept. 25-29 at 54 Below. Singing timeless classics from five decades of Barbra Streisand’s multi-faceted career, Callaway crafts a loving musical portrait of the icon who once described herself as being “simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy and driven.”

The Tony-nominated actress puts unique pop/jazz spin on unforgettable songs from Barbra’s Broadway years (Funny Girl) to her film works (A Star Is Born), from her early pop albums (“People”) to her later concept albums (“Higher Ground”) which debuted at number 1 on Billboard and featured Ann’s original peace anthem “At The Same Time.” Callaway weaves humorous and inspiring anecdotes of how Streisand began as such a role model for her and evolved as a mentor, recording Ann’s songs on six of her recent CD’s, including “I’ve Dreamed Of You,” the song that Streisand sang on her wedding day. In a night of soaring songs and stories, Callaway promises us a performance that not only celebrates the extraordinary career of Barbra Streisand, but also reminds us of “the way we were.” Cover charge: $30-40. $25 food and beverage minimum.
