Aside from her significant career starring on and off Broadway for the last three decades, singer, actress, and recording artist Liz Callaway (b. Chicago, IL, 13 April 1961) is well known for providing the singing voices of leading characters in animated films. The recipient of a Tony® nomination (for Baby, 1984) and an Emmy Award (for hosting “Ready to Go,” a children’s program on WNEV-TV in Boston, 1987–1991), Callaway can be heard on four solo albums, six original show albums and five film soundtracks, one complete collection and several tracks of duets with her sister Ann Hampton Callaway, Infinite Joy: the Songs of William Finn, and a dozen other compilations of various kinds.
Callaway made her Broadway debut in 1981 as a waitress in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, a box-office failure that later turned into a cult favorite. In 1983 she appeared in a major role in Baby, the David Shire/Richard Maltby, Jr. vehicle that brought her a Tony® nomination as Best Featured Actress in a Musical. When that closed after 241 performances, she was cast in a musical revival of The Three Musketeers that bit the dust within a week.
She has appeared with major orchestras at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and on tour with the Boston Pops. Also in New York she has performed in Hair in Concert, A Stephen Sondheim Evening, and Fiorello! at Encores!, entertained in cabaret acts at Joe’s Pub, the Metropolitan Room, and the Russian Tea Room, and co-starred with Jimmy Webb and Paul Williams in their critically acclaimed engagement at Feinstein’s.
In 2000 Callaway played Shelby the waitress in the musical version of The Spitfire Grill at Playwrights Horizons. The show, directed by David Saint, received Best Musical nominations from the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League, as well as Drama Desk nominations for Garrett Long (playing Percy) as Outstanding Actress in a Musical and Liz Callaway as Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical.
Once again on Broadway in 2003, if only for a fixed run of six weeks, Callaway sang in The Look of Love, a retrospective musical revue of the songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
