Her latest musical album Sondheim Sublime was recently released to critical acclaim, with The Wall Street Journal calling it “The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded.” Throughout 2017 and 2018, Melissa performed successful and extended runs at Feinstein’s/54 Below of her solo concert, “Melissa Sings Sondheim,” celebrating the music of Stephen Sondheim and won raves when she brought it to London’s ‘Live at Zedel’ for her sold-out UK concert debut co-written with Adam Gopnik. She also brought her Sondheim program to The Ravinia Festival last fall and appeared again at Feinstein’s/54 Below in for the Sondheim Sublime album release in November 2018. She will bring the show back to London and ‘Live at Zedel’ in May 2019.
She’s had thrilling highs at City Center’s Encores! series, most notably Call Me Madam, One Touch of Venus which nearly set Manhattan on fire, and more recently Do I Hear a Waltz? in 2016. Her continued work with Stephen Sondheim includes starring in Sunday in The Park with George at The Kennedy Center with Raul Esparza and starring as Clara in the first New York revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Passion at The Classic Stage Company in 2013, directed by John Doyle. She won unanimous raves in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more leading publications (“Melissa Errico, as Clara, suggests subtle ripples of deeper feeling behind her golden gown and silvery soprano.” – Time Out), as well as being nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.
She has also become a favorite at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles where she starred in My Fair Lady (opposite John Lithgow), Camelot (opposite Jeremy Irons), and The Sound of Music (with a cast led by Marni Nixon and John Schneider), singing for 20,000 people a night for a week! Jeremy Irons and Melissa reprised their Camelot again in 2010 on Broadway’s Shubert Theatre.
