She then earned a Tony Award nomination for her role in Baby, followed by five years of acclaim for her performance as Grizabella in Cats. Callaway has also played lead roles in the original casts of The Look of Love, The Three Musketeers, and Miss Saigon.

She was also cast as Norma Desmond in Pittsburgh CLO's Sunset Boulevard.
Callaway has also established herself as a major concert and recording artist. Her award-winning creation with her sister Ann Hampton Callaway, Sibling Revelry, was presented to considerable acclaim in London at the Donmar Warehouse. Boom!, a revue of classics from the '60s and '70s, was another sisterly collaboration, which they recorded live at Birdland. Boom! is currently touring the nation's performing arts centers. Recently, Callaway had the pleasure of singing with the legendary Johnny Mathis in Vancouver. She also performed with Jimmy Webb and Paul Williams in their acclaimed show at Feinstein's in New York. She joined Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick, and Burt Bacharach in Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum for Hal David's 90th birthday concert. Her extensive work with U.S. symphonies includes appearances at The Hollywood Bowl, Ravinia, Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center. Internationally, she has performed in Estonia, China, Iceland, New Zealand, South Korea, Slovenia, France (at Paris' Theatre du Chatelet), Australia (with Stephen Schwartz), and Barcelona (at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, where she premiered a new revue of the music of Stephen Sondheim).
Callaway sang the Oscar-nominated song from the animated film Anastasia, "Journey to the Past". She is the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in The Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Other movie work includes the singing voices of the title characters in The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars, Lyle the Crocodile, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, and The Swan Princess.
Callaway won an Emmy Award for her work as the host of the daily live kids' program Ready to Go on CBS in Boston. Her other TV credits include Senior Trip, The David Letterman Show, "Christmas with the Boston Pops", "Inside the Actor's Studio: Stephen Sondheim", and "In Performance at the White House".
She has released five solo albums: Merry and Bright (a holiday record), Anywhere I Wander (a Frank Loesser collection), The Story Goes On (a collection of her Broadway and Off-Broadway numbers), The Beat Goes On, and Passage of Time.

Live at Birdland, and Sibling Revelry.
One of Liz Callaway's most critically acclaimed albums in 2012's Boom! Live in Birdland. Here, the Broadway veteran and her jazz/cabaret vocalist sister Ann Hampton Callaway collaborate for an extended series at Birdland, documented in 2011. The set explores the sisters' favorite pop tunes of the '60s and early '70s. The siblings reveal a little bit about their thoughts and influences on some of the numbers between songs, and their connection with their attentive audiences is almost visceral. Whether singing individually or together, they capture the spirit of each and every song, supported by the lively arrangements of pianist Alex Rybeck. They are equally skilled at interpreting ballads such as Marvin Hamlisch's "The Way We Were" and Carly Simon's "That's the Way I Always Heard It Should Be" as a duet, complementing each other's voices as only blood relations can. They have an absolute ball playing off the Beatles' stoner classic "Come Together", and they deliver a "Back-Seat-of-the-Car" medley which includes portions of many great songs of the late '60s and early '70s. The strongest songwriter featured in this collection is clearly Stevie Wonder, to whom the sisters pay tribute with a lengthy medley of tunes that have been recorded mostly by jazz artists. This concert recording is a joyful throwback to the past that is never bogged down in predictability.
One of Liz Callaway's most recently acclaimed performances was "Celebrate!", her cabaret show at 54 Below in New York City. Holiday cheer is easy to simulate onstage, if often with a tinge of forced desperation. Fortunately, Callaway spread tidings of comfort and joy with sincere bonhomie that seemed to radiate from deep within. The show was enough to soften even the most cynical, misanthropic heart. There were just enough dissonant moments to keep the concert from melting into saccharinity. The cleverest was the amazingly prophetic "What Do We Do? We Fly!" from the Do I Hear a Waltz, the 1965 Rodgers-Sondheim musical. Written in the halcyon days of air travel, this witty number identified travelers' frustrations even in the golden age, reminding the audience that before they go home for the holidays, they face the nightmare of getting there.
Liz Callaway is married to Dan Foster. Their son, Nicholas, attended Kenyon College.
