Pace Presents Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway in BOOM!, 10/15
On October 15 Tony-nominated actors Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway come to Pace Presents in BOOM!, their acclaimed show featuring music by such artists as Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Carly Simon, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Jimmy Webb and Stevie Wonder. Over the course of a single evening, the two sisters will lead audiences through humorous and heartwarming stories of their Chicago and New York pasts putting their unmistakable stamp on classics like "Both Sides Now," "Up, Up and Away," "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" and "Downtown."
Having each cultivated successful careers separately, BOOM! presents a rare opportunity for audiences to experience the two award-winning performers on stage together. Liz Callaway made her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along and received a Tony nomination for her performance in Baby. She also appeared in Cats on Broadway for five years in the role of Grizabella and has starred in the original casts of Miss Saigon, The Three Musketeers and The Look of Love.
Ann Hampton Callaway's unique singing voice and signature blend of jazz and pop music styles have won her accolades across the U.S. as a champion of the great American Songbook. She is perhaps best known to New York audiences for her Tony-nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical Swing! and for her performances with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. She has sung with more than 25 of the world's top orchestras and big bands, including the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall and Tanglewood. As a songwriter she has received numerous platinum awards, and her songs are featured on five of Barbra Streisand's recent CDs.
BOOM! marks the first music event of the Pace Presents 2011-2012 season, throughout which Lower Manhattan audiences will experience some of today's leading innovators in American and world music. The season also features dance performances and visual arts presentations.
