“Sublime...one of those albums that, once you get to the end, you want to listen all over again...it's an exciting and riveting performance.” –Talkin' Broadway
Liz Callaway Passage of Time
Liz Callaway, who landed her first Broadway starring role at the age of 22 in the Maltby–Shire musical Baby, returns with her first solo album in eight years. This new collection, which ranges from standards to contemporary fare, reveals an actress who has lived a rich life both on and off stage.
Liz transforms classics like “Something Wonderful” and “Make Someone Happy” into personal songs of depth and perspective, then uncovers new meaning in Stephen Schwartz’s “I’m Not That Girl,” in which a young woman tastes the bitterness of unrequited love, by pairing it with John Bucchino’s song of self-preservation, “Just Another Face.” Returning to Baby, she inhabits the quiet anguish of “Patterns”; revisiting Cats, she offers up a definitive performance of “Memory,” giving new life to the classic song.
In addition to songs from the stage, Callaway is joined by her sister, the accomplished jazz singer Ann Hampton Callaway, for Carly Simon’s anthem to the distant thunder of married life, “That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be.” With this rewarding series of songs, Liz reveals herself not only as one of Broadway’s timeless voices, but as an artist who continues to experience and celebrate the PASSAGE OF TIME.
