Ann Hampton Callaway “…superbly intelligent, singularly creative pop-jazz stylist who can stand shoulder to shoulder with Streisand, Ronstadt, Shirley Horn, and Dianne Reeves…” – JazzTimes — returns to the Playhouse with an exciting show kicking off Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial year. Callaway explores the breadth of Ella Fitzgerald’s repertoire in a show titled “The Ella Century” including fresh takes on classics such as, “How High the Moon,” “Mr. Paganini,” and “Every Time We Say Goodbye.” Ann won the Theater World Award and received a Tony nomination for her starring role in the Broadway musical “Swing!” She’s written over 250 songs including Platinum Award winning hits for Barbra Streisand and the theme for the hit TV series “The Nanny.”

Vocalist Cyrille Aimée – winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s Vocal Competition, the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition and finalist in the Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition, Aimée is—in the words of Will Friedwald of The Wall Street Journal—”one of the most promising jazz singers of her generation.”
