Ann Hampton Callaway & Liz Callaway returning to London with 'Sibling Revelry'

Ann Hampton Callaway and her sister Liz Callaway are bringing their show Sibling Revelry back to London for the first time in nineteen years.

They will play a five-day residency at the Hippodrome Casino between Tuesday 7th July and Saturday 11th July 2015. Dan Foster directs.

Liz is an Emmy Award-winning actress, singer and recording artist, who made her Broadway debut in Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in the musical Baby, she co-starred in the original Broadway production of Miss Saigon and for five years won acclaim starring as Grizabella in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. 

Multi award-winning cabaret star Ann is one of the leading champions of the great American Songbook and was Tony-nominated for her performance in the hit Broadway musical Swing! She is a platinum award-winning writer who collaborated with Cole Porter and whose songs are featured on six of Barbra Streisand’s recent CD’s. 

Sibling Revelry, the sisters’ first major show together, is a wonderful showcase for older sister Ann’s deep jazz-tinged vocals and younger sister Liz’s clear-bell Broadway soprano. Its songs are linked by witty banter as the two compare their respective stage and recording careers, putting the revelry in rivalry. 

This engagement features updates to their original show which was made famous by their cult classic live CD. Highlights include a comically catty version of Friendship and The Huge Medley, a 16-song musical roller coaster of famous Broadway and pop duets including Bosom Buddies, A Boy Like That, Nowadays and the Barbra Streisand-Donna Summer disco hit,Enough Is Enough.
