Spokane audiences have the chance to watch two new performances thanks to WestCoast Entertainment and STCU Best of Broadway. Beginning Friday, Emmy winner and Tony nominee Liz Callaway’s “Home for the Holidays” will be available for viewing.
During “Home for the Holidays,” which streams through Dec. 19, Callaway will perform holiday favorites, Broadway show tunes and music from her new holiday album, “Comfort and Joy: An Acoustic Christmas.” She also will share stories about the holiday and her career. The livestream includes a behind-the-scenes interview with Callaway and postshow Q&A.
“WestCoast Entertainment continues to curate safe and meaningful experiences to share with theater and Broadway enthusiasts,” WestCoast Entertainment President Justin Kobluk said in a news release. “We take pride in continuing to present quality entertainment to our patrons and want to provide them with an opportunity to enjoy a unique holiday performance from the comfort of their home.”
Ticketholders will be able to view the concert, which was recorded in New York’s Bedford Playhouse, for 24 hours after they begin watching. Tickets are $20 and available at https://watch.eventive.org/bedfordplayhousepresentslizcallaway/play/5fb6c07561941500294a00ab.
“Like so many other arts organizations who are struggling around the world, we have adapted our approach to serve our community through virtual programming,” Michael Hoagland, executive director of Bedford Playhouse, said in a news release. “When this opportunity came up to produce original content with Liz Callaway, we instantly said, ‘Yes!’
“It’s been a particularly hard year for the theater industry, and we hope that by partnering with Ms. Callaway and our fellow theaters, we can provide a little joy to audiences across the country this holiday season.”
