“The Maria Callas of American musical theater” as Opera News has called her, referencing both her crystalline voice and dramatic, expressive intensity, Melissa Errico is an actress, singer, and author. First known for her starring roles on Broadway in the musicals Anna Karenina, My Fair Lady, High Society, Dracula, and White Christmas, nothing in her work has been more constant than her association with Michel Legrand. Having starred in his sole Broadway show Amour (earning a Tony nomination for her performance), she went on to collaborate with him on the iconic album “Legrand Affair.” After his death in 2019, she was asked to write his eulogy by The New York Times - where she is a frequent contributor - and was then invited to become the sole American performer to participate in the extraordinary two-day memorial to Legrand held last year in Paris’ Le Grand Rex Theatre, work that led one critic to announce that, “Errico is, and will continue to be, the premier interpreter of the musical legacy of Michel Legrand.” This winter Warner Music/Ghostlight Records has reissued her symphonic album, which Legrand arranged & conducted, as “Legrand Affair (Deluxe Edition).” She was also recently honored with a caricature at Sardi’s and her other recent album release, “Sondheim Sublime” was called by The Wall Street Journal “the best all-Sondheim album ever recorded.”
