Callaway, Blazer & Charles Sing at Tower Records on Sept. 21

Broadway stars Liz Callaway, Judy Blazer and Walter Charles will show up at Lincoln Center's Tower Records (1961 Broadway) on September 21st at 6 PM to perform songs from the new CD "Time After Time/Dodsworth: New Songs from New Musicals."

Recorded live on September 19th 2004, the CD features the three performers as well as Spamalot's Christine Borle singing numbers from those two musicals, both of which are penned by composer Jeffrey Saver and lyricist Stephen Cole. Dodsworth is based on the Sinclair Lewis novel that in turn inspired a play by Sidney Howard and a 1936 film starring Walter Huston and Mary Astor. Time After Time is also based on a book that became a movie--Karl Alexander's novel and then the 1979 film starring Mary Steenburgen and Malcolm McDowell; the show features author H.G. Wells racing through time to nab Jack the Ripper.

Callaway was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in 1983's Baby, and she has also appeared on Broadway in the Bacharach revue The Look of Love, Miss Saigon, The Three Musketeers, Cats and in the original cast of Merrily We Roll Along; she participated in the anniversary concert of the latter Sondheim show. She was also in the recent Actor's Fund Benefit Hair concert, and Callaway's CDs include The Beat Goes On, and The Story Goes On.

Blazer has appeared on Broadway in Neil Simon's 45 Seconds from Broadway, Titanic, A Change in the Heir and Me and My Girl, as well as in Encores!' A Connecticut Yankee and Michael John LaChiusa's Hello Again, for which she received a Drama Desk nomination. Her regional credits include Peter Pan, Funny Girl, My Fair Lady and The Miracle Worker. She is also the co-founder of the summer musical theatre program for college students, Artists' Crossing.

Charles, who will next play Mr. Fairlie in the Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Woman in White, has been seen on Broadway in almost a dozen shows. They include Big River, The Boys from Syracuse, Kiss Me, Kate, Aspects of Love, Me and My Girl, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Grease.
