About

“Any chance to hear Melissa Errico sing is a chance worth taking.” – The New York Times

“The Maria Callas of American musical theater,” as Opera News has called her, referencing both her silken voice and dramatic, expressive intensity, Melissa Errico is an actress, singer, and author. First known for her starring roles on Broadway, she has since become a concert, cabaret and recording artist as well; her 2018 album Sondheim Sublime was called by The Wall Street Journal “The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded.”

Melissa Errico is a Tony Award-nominated Broadway star—an actor, singer and author — who contributes regularly to The New York Times in an essay series called “Scenes From An Acting Life.” The Wall Street Journal recently referred to her as a “nonpareil cabaret singer.”

So begins Stephen Sondheim’s anthemic song of a show girl’s search for stage stardom. In her new show “The Life and Loves of a Broadway Baby,” Melissa Errico sets her own life to the Broadway songs that she has sung and owned — and offers both a sensational set of beloved standards and a series of witty and sometimes wicked stories about a life passed on the Great White Way. Rapidly becoming just as well-known as a New York Times’ author as an actress, Melissa combines her two gifts to offer a show that is full of fierce song and funny stories, making the evening, as one critic has said, like experiencing the “Nora Ephron rom-com version of Sex in the City.” A classy, sublime study of American songs, ranging from Cole Porter to Harold Arlen, Lerner & Loewe to Taylor Swift… with a substantial look at Melissa’s new Sondheim album “Sondheim in The City.”

Come hear why Broadway World says “The way Melissa Errico immerses herself in every moment, the technical brilliance of her vocal abilities, and the sheer star power that the lady exudes, makes her a take-no-prisoners performer, offering a leave-it-all-on-the-floor show.”

Melissa Errico will be joined by BILLY STRITCH a renowned American composer, arranger, vocalist, and jazz pianist. For many years, he was best known as a confidant, music director, and piano player for Liza Minnelli. Together with Melissa Errico, they share this year’s Broadway World Music Award for best swing big band show.
