Ann Hampton Callaway Sings Peggy Lee & The ’70s
January 15, 2023
One night only! Tony Award® nominee Ann Hampton Callaway, one of the leading pop/jazz singers of our time, has created an exciting night of songs and stories in celebration of her inspiration and one of America’s most beloved artists, Peggy Lee. On the heels of Ann’s Streisand Songbook symphonic triumph, this show celebrates the 100th birthday of the trailblazing woman who gave the world “Fever” through six decades of iconic songs from sultry to sizzling. Fall under the spell of love songs from Peggy’s swinging Benny Goodman days through decades of hits from film and recordings that earned this iconic singer songwriter her powerhouse nickname, “The female Frank Sinatra.”
In the second half of this exciting performance, the Broadway star and Platinum selling singer/songwriter sings rousing and beautiful classics from the ’70s with her all-star trio. Callaway covers hits from the great songwriters of the time-Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, John Lennon and more. And she puts her own stamp on the unforgettable songs from The Carpenters, Linda Ronstadt, Barbra Streisand, Roberta Flack and other beloved singers of the time. For a feel-good time of holding hands, clapping, singing along and taking a walk down memory lane, this is the show to see!
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
The Best Peggy Lee tribute I’ve ever seen.

Ann Hampton Callaway has never sounded better, she’s never looked better, she’s never been better.

The charm factor is off the charts when Callaway is commanding a show, and that’s abundantly evident in her new show Fever! The Peggy Lee Century. In addition to being funny and endearing, Callaway is above all else as fine a musician as you can find on any stage.
