Ann Hampton Callaway and Susan Werner

Singer, songwriter, actress, pianist, and keeper-of-the-flame Ann Hampton Callaway is one of her generation’s most beloved cabaret performers— as adept at sultry vocals as she is at powerful Broadway belting. Susan Werner—composer and lyricist for the new Broadway musical Bull Durham and a songwriter who “brings literacy and wit back to popular song”— serves up a brilliant mix of gospel, pop, folk, and jazz (The New Yorker). Each artist has wowed Krannert Center audiences separately in the past; together, they make a dream team of song!

Club-style performances offer first-come, first-served seating at tables of four in the Studio Theatre. Full bar service with snacks is available during the performance.
