It's something of a surprise that one of the most spectacular voices in all of musical theater belongs not to a name-above-the-title, scenery-chewing, headline-grabbing uber-diva, but to this sublime, resolutely down-to-earth soprano from Chicago. More than most of her colleagues, Liz Callaway has essentially made it on pure chops and the stunning beauty of her pipes, which is one reason why she's thrived in such mediums as the soundtracks of animated cartoons (most extensively in the original Anastasia) and recordings, both being formats where the majority of Broadway headliners are rarely presented at their best. Still, she's hardly underground (she is, after all, a Tony nominee and an Emmy winner), Broadway insiders know well who she is, which is why her runs at Feinstein's / 54 Below almost always sell out. This latest show promises a Metro-centric "set in the city" including songs by Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Bacharach & David, Billy Joel, and Irving Berlin.
