On June 23 & 24, Tony-nominee and Emmy-winning singer, actress and recording artist Liz Callaway left us speechless at the inaugural cabaret of The 1919 Lounge at the Empire Arts Center. This Broadway legend is best known for her starring roles in Baby, Miss Saigon, and Cats. You may also recognize her as the singing voice of Anya in the animated feature film Anastasia (yes, that’s her!). The intimate evening included Broadway favorites, enchanting tales, and songs from her latest CD, The Essential Liz Callaway.
