 CAPE MAY — Two singing sisters, Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway, will perform their act “Sibling Revelry” 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19 at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse, 405 Lafayette St., Cape May – home of the Cape May Stage.

“Sibling Revelry” is a loosely-based musical autobiography outlining their lives from their childhood in Chicago to their move to New York City and the continuing adventures.

The Tony-nominated sisters will perform duets and solo numbers that trace their separate artistic developments. Ann Hampton Callaway will demonstrate her versatility with torch songs such as “Old Friend” and jazz classics such as “Blues in the Night,” while Liz shows off her Broadway background with tender tunes like “Meadowlark” and “My Heart Is So Full of You.”

The two playfully spar with snappy banter and humorous duets, the most notable being “The Huge Medley,” which strings together more than a dozen duets. And no Callaway act would be complete without a performance of the theme song from TV's “The Nanny,” which was written and recorded by the Callaways.

The show is part of Cape May Stage’s Second Stage Broadway Series. Tickets are $50 and include an after party at the Wine Bar at the Washington Inn, at the corner of Washington and Jefferson streets.

The party includes finger food; and there is a cash bar.
