Multi-Platinum selling singer-songwriter, composer, lyricist, pianist and actress, Ann Hampton Callaway will celebrate one of America’s most enduring artists, Barbra Streisand, singing her vast repertoire (“Evergreen”, “People”, “Cry Me a River”, “Starting Here, Starting Now”, “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and many more) at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, November 16, at 8 p.m. Callaway is best known for her Tony nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical Swing! and for writing the theme song for the TV show “The Nanny.”

Ann Hampton Callaway is a born entertainer whose forte is a unique blend of jazz and pop. She has penned many tunes for Ms. Streisand, so it is fitting that she honor her through song in her own inimitable style. Bernard’s (22 West Lane, Ridgefield) is offering a special prix-fixe menu before or after the show or a free glass of wine with dinner when tickets are presented; reservations suggested. This Ridgefield Magazine Broadway and Cabaret Series?event is partially underwritten by Adam Broderick Salon & Spa.

Callaway was described by the New York Times (2011) as a jazz-cabaret singer who "smolders more than she sizzles." Singing the Streisand Songbook, Callaway soars beyond its scope. As Brian Scott Lipton wrote in a review of Ann’s show in New York City this past September, “Callaway has everything in her arsenal to pull off this seemingly impossible feat: a rich voice with extraordinary range, a superb sense of musicianship, and a love and knowledge of Streisand’s oeuvre, all of which adds up to a don’t-miss show…”

Ann Hampton Callaway has recorded and performed the award winning show "Sibling Revelry" with her sister Broadway star Liz Callaway. Ann has produced two critically acclaimed public television specials called "Singer's Spotlight With Ann Hampton Callaway", featuring Liza Minnelli and Christine Ebersole.

For tickets ($45 orches., $40 mezz.), call the box office at 203-438-5795. For more information on The Ridgefield Playhouse, visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
