The York Theatre Company‘s April 15 spring gala features a one-night-only concert with Tony nominee Liz Callaway.

Entitled Liz Callaway: Their Story Goes On: A Musical Celebration of The York, the evening begins at 7:30 PM at the York's temporary home at the Theater at St. Jean. York Associate Producing Director Joseph Hayward directs the concert with musical direction and piano accompaniment by Alex Rybeck.

“We are delighted to welcome Liz Callaway back to The York,” said Producing Artistic Director Jim Morgan in an earlier statement. “Liz is a longtime friend of the company,
and made her York debut in 1987 with Sondheim's Marry Me a Little, co-starring John Jellison. In 2020, she appeared in An Evening with Sheldon Harnick, and
she's performed with us in any number of Oscar Hammerstein Galas and
developmental readings. With the estimable Alex Rybeck at the piano, Their Story Goes On
promises to be a spectacular evening, covering Liz’s personal
relationship with all sorts of writers who have been associated with The
York, including Sondheim, Ahrens and Flaherty, Schwartz, Maltby and
Shire, and many more. We look forward to seeing you there!”

Callaway received a Tony nomination for her performance in Baby, and was also seen on Broadway in Cats, Miss Saigon, The Three Musketeers, and The Look of Love. Other New York appearances include Follies in Concert at Lincoln Center, A Stephen Sondheim Evening, Encores! Fiorello, and Hair in Concert. She sang the Academy Award-nominated “Journey to the Past” in the animated feature Anastasia. Other film work includes Jasmine in the two Aladdin sequels; The Swan Princess; and The Rewrite with Hugh Grant.

The concert will be followed by a VIP seated dinner and reception with the stars. VIP Tickets are priced at $500 (includes VIP seating and reception), $350 (show and reception), and $200 (show only).
