“Broadway Baby / walking off my tired feet/ pounding Forty Second Street/to be in a show!” So begins Stephen Sondheim’s anthemic song of a show girl’s search for stage stardom. In her new show, Broadway Baby- From Manhasset to Manhattan & Beyond, Melissa Errico (My Fair Lady, High Society, Dracula, White Christmas) sets her own life to the Broadway songs that she has sung and owned — and offers both a sensational set of beloved standards and a series of witty and sometimes wicked stories about an ingenue’s life passed on the Great White Way. Rapidly becoming as well-known as a New York Times author as an actress, Melissa combines her two gifts to offer a show that is full of fierce song and funny stories, too, making the evening, as one critic has said, like experiencing the “Nora Ephron rom-com version of ‘Sex in the City.” A sexy, sublime study of American songs, ranging from Cole Porter to Harold Arlen, Lerner & Loewe to Taylor Swift… with a substantial peek at Melissa’s upcoming Sondheim album, Sondheim In The City, due in early 2024 with songs like “Everybody Says Don’t,” “Take Me To The World,” and “Being Alive.”
Come hear why BroadwayWorld says that “the way Melissa Errico immerses herself in every moment, the technical brilliance of her vocal abilities, and the sheer star power that the lady exudes, makes her a take-no-prisoners performer, offering a leave-it-all-on-the-floor show!”
Featuring the Tedd Firth Jazz Trio.

★★★★★ / A perfect night out, Broadway Baby combines all the best from musical theatre and underground jazz…from cheeky and playful (Sondheim, Marc Shaiman, Rodgers & Hart), it goes to lyrical and sentimental (Michel Legrand, Johnny Mercer), and back. As Melissa says jokingly, her show is like an Italian stew: she puts in it the best she’s got. And the audience agrees with her, fully charmed with her voice and eager to hear more.

★★★★★ / Mesmerizing. She is nothing less than a force of nature – so much talent in one package, it’s enough to make mere mortals sick! Is there nothing this lady cannot do? This wasn’t any old cabaret gig, but very special and an EVENT. Once again, this Broadway Baby blew us away.
Musical Theatre Review
[Melissa Errico is] a poet, a painter, a walking work of art that lives and breathes to tell stories, and we all the lucky benefactors of her passion.
