Boom! 2011

About the Album: Sisters and Tony Award-nominated actresses Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway have delighted and enthralled crowds with Boom!, their hit concert celebrating the soundtrack of their childhood with unforgettable songs from the 1960s and '70s. Now, this hit show - in which, The New York Times raved, the sisters "lift these songs to expressive heights rarely attained by any singer" - has been recorded during the Callaways' engagement at New York's famed Birdland in May 2011. Boom! is a joyous, exultant evening - sometimes zany, often moving, always surprising - that features tunes made famous by Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Jimmy Webb, Stevie Wonder and others, such as "A Case of You," "Yesterday," "You've Got a Friend," "Always Something There to Remind Me" and "Blowin' in the Wind." The sisters, who alternate expressive solos with radiant duets, also share heartwarming, humorous stories of their years growing up in Chicago and New York. They are backed by musical director, arranger and pianist Alex Rybeck, bassist Jared Egan, and drummer Ron Tierno, with Rybeck and Egan doubling on background vocals. Their second live CD (following the popular Sibling Revelry), Boom! brims with a warmth, joy and love that will transport listeners back to a time when the songs on the radio were the soundtrack of life.

Review: DISNEY'S FROZEN at Music Theatre Of Wichita At Century II Concert Hall
by Paula Makar - July 11, 2024

In continuing with MTWichita’s 2024 Season Theme “The Year of the Woman,” I had the privilege of seeing Disney’s Frozen on the Century II Concert Hall Stage. MTWichita is one of the first indoor regional theatres to produce Disney’s Frozen after the show closed on Broadway. This can be a challenge because the sets and costumes cannot look the same as the original Broadway production, so all the design elements, including choreography, need to be reimagined. The MTWichita team exceeds expectations here, creating some magnificent, otherworldly realms for the denizens of Arendelle to inhabit. You do not want to miss this show, which runs until July 14th.
