In 1970, Liz Callaway saw a musical that would change her life forever- Company, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, at the Alvin Theatre. A decade later, she would make her Broadway debut in Merrily We Roll Along, by the same composer at the same theatre. Now, with her critically acclaimed show “To Steve with Love,” she pays homage to the writer who changed the course of her life. Honoring the life and songs of the most influential composer of the modern musical, the Emmy winner and Tony nominee celebrates the master with a carefully curated evening of the words and music of Stephen Joshua Sondheim. BroadwayWorld raved “it is the most important Sondheim show right now, and it is the one that cannot be missed,” the Bistro Awards proclaimed the evening “glorious”, and Musical Theatre Review called the show “as close to perfection as you can get.” What more do you need, indeed?
