Tony Award-nominated Broadway star Melissa Errico joins Cape May Stage for an unforgettable evening of music. Melissa will be performing some of her favorite love songs from Broadway and beyond. One night only at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse.



Biography:

“The Maria Callas of American musical theater,” as Opera News has called her, referencing both her crystalline voice and dramatic, expressive intensity, Melissa Errico is a Tony Award-nominated Broadway star -- an actress, singer and author who contributes regularly to The New York Times. The Wall Street Journal recently referred to her as a "nonpareil cabaret singer."

First known for her starring roles on Broadway, including My Fair Lady, High Society and Les Misérables, her recent album, Sondheim Sublime, was called by The Wall Street Journal “The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded.” Errico’s history with Sondheim began when he selected her to star as Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, and she has since co-starred as Clara in Passion at Classic Stage Company and in the NY City Center Encores! production of the Sondheim/Rodgers musical Do I Hear A Waltz? In April 2020, she appeared in the much-talked about Sondheim 90th Birthday Concert with Broadway.com and in May, was featured on the PBS Poetry in America episode about Sondheim which featured Melissa singing “Finishing the Hat.”

In addition to 
Sondheim, nothing in her work has been more constant than her association with composer Michel Legrand. Having starred in his sole Broadway show, Amour, she went on to collaborate with him on the iconic album Legrand Affair. After his death in 2019, she was asked to write his eulogy by The New York Times and was then invited to be the sole American performer in the extraordinary two-day memorial to Legrand held in April, 2019 at Paris’ Le Grand Rex Theatre. Warner Music/Ghostlight Records recently reissued her symphonic album, which Legrand arranged & conducted, as Legrand Affair (Deluxe Edition).

Even at the height of the pandemic, she managed to keep her voice and presence alive to her audience. Not only 
offering multiple live-streams and conversations -- teaching master classes for students across the country and producing a delicious at-home cooking show "The Honest Cook" on Instagram—she has also been amazingly busy with concert and on-line cabaret, including an often-singled-out appearance on the Sondheim birthday special, and a holiday program for the Bay Street Theater that the Wall Street Journal called “a fetching performance in which her radiant singing and impeccable diction were shown off to ideal effect.” Her plans for the coming year include an expanded collection of her Times series, “Scenes From An Acting Life”, a series of concerts and a film festival for New York’s Alliance Française, and the development of her own dramatic one woman show for NYC’s Irish Rep.
