Melissa Errico is an actress, singer and recording artist. In addition to establishing herself on the Broadway stage in dramas and musicals, Melissa has appeared in prime time TV shows, feature films and concert halls across the world. She has released three solo studio albums to date.

The early years[edit]

Melissa Errico was born in New York Hospital and lived in New York City for five years while her New Jersey-raised father completed medical residency and her Brooklyn-native mother was a schoolteacher in Harlem. Both of first-generation Italian descent, her parents ultimately relocated the family to Manhasset, Long Island where her father established a medical practice in Orthopedics.[1] Melissa's parents saw the early spark of inspiration when they took their daughter to see the Broadway revival [2] of “On Your Toes." Uncannily, it was at the same theater (The Virginia) exactly ten years later where a 22-year old Melissa starred as Eliza Doolittle in the Broadway revival of "My Fair Lady," winning such accolades as "beguiling...irrepressible...and altogether endearing" (NY Times).[3] Growing up, Melissa combined her aptitude for gymnastics and ballet with a passion for musical theater and she performed in local theater groups on Long Island. She competed in gymnastics at a national level and by 6th grade spent summers at French Woods Camp for The Performing Arts.[4]

Starting her professional career at the age of 12, Melissa appeared on national television in the Sunbow Entertainment production, syndicated children’s TV series “The Great Space Coaster" (created by Kermit Love (original Muppet designer for Jim Henson) and Jim Martin (Emmy award winner for “Sesame Street”).[5] At French Woods, she was cast in major roles from her first summer at the age of 12 as Hedy La Rue in "How To Succeed..,"[6] followed by Eva Peron in "Evita" (opposite composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown),[7] Carla in "Nine" and Charity Barnum in "Barnum".[8] During two school years, Melissa was a member of the teen performance group “NY Cabaret Troupe” and regularly showcased with the group.[9]

Education[edit]

Melissa Errico was accepted at Yale University and during her first year she drove into the city regularly for auditions. One afternoon, Melissa was seen waiting in a hallway for a summer stock call back for the role of Josie Cohan (originated by Bernadette Peters) in an upcoming Rhode Island Theater by the Sea’s production of “George M." Approached by Cameron Mackintosh's production team Melissa was asked to audition for the role of Cosette [10] [11] – she won the role and toured for a year in the First National Company of “Les Misérables”. She later returned and graduated from Yale University with an honors degree [12] in Art History & Philosophy.[13] While a student in New Haven, Melissa played Irina in "The Three Sisters" with Edward Norton.[14] During the summer of her junior year, Melissa studied acting, with a focus on Chekhov, Shaw & Shakespeare at the University of Oxford,[15] England where she took a master class with distinguished actor Jeremy Irons (with whom she would later co-star in two productions of the classic musical “Camelot" at The Hollywood Bowl and an acclaimed one-night only staged concert on Broadway at the Shubert Theater). She was accepted into the Yale Graduate School of Drama but opted instead to star in “Anna Karenina” as Princess Kitty on Broadway at The Circle in the Square. During this production, she was spotted by the producers casting the revival of "My Fair Lady."

The Ziegfeld connection[edit]

Her maternal grandmother was an operatic, lyric soprano;[16] her sister, Rose, who went on to become a successful Ziegfeld Follies girl, was known to have been one of the favorite dancers of the famed impresario (also appearing in the original production of "Show Boat" in 1927). Melissa is a member of the New York Ziegfeld Society.[17]

Career[edit]

Theater[edit]

Having led musical theater companies on Broadway, Melissa has also appeared in straight plays, both high comedy and dramatic, by writers as varied as Oscar Wilde and Wallace Shawn. This is supported by her six Drama Desk award nominations in categories with such peers as Laura Linney, Viola Davis, Anne Hathaway and Alison Janney. Melissa is the recipient of a Tony Award nomination for Best Leading Actress in a Musical (Michel Legrand's "Amour"), four Outer Critics Circle Awards, five Drama League Honors, two Helen Hayes nods and a triumphant Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress in “One Touch of Venus." She is the first recipient in history of the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

Roles of particular significance

  • Eliza Doolittle: previewing from 26 November 1993, opening 9th December and running until May 1, 1994, Melissa starred as Eliza opposite Richard Chamberlain and Julian Holloway (who recreated his father’s role as Alfred P. Doolittle) at the Virginia Theater on Broadway. Well-received, David Richards (New York Times) commended the "beguiling newcomer" for her breakout performance - “As Ms. Errico delivers the exultant song, she does a backward somersault on the mattress, dives under the covers, pops right back out again, performs a balancing act on the headboard and generally carries on like a kid on Christmas Eve. The actress is irrepressible, gawky, and altogether endearing. Anyone playing Eliza, of course, can expect to be measured against Julie Andrews. Ms. Errico does not make so fine a fair lady, perhaps. But then I’m not sure Ms. Andrews was ever quite this frisky.” New York magazine also complimented her entrance by saying “Melissa Errico walked on stage, in her debut as Eliza Doolittle… a Julie Andrews-wannabe and walked off Broadway’s newest star.” Melissa was also praised not only for singing, "like a dream" but for the physicality she brought to the role, "Errico...is a very physical Eliza, singing I Could Have Danced All Night as if she would never sit out a dance.[18] In 2003, Melissa took to the stage as Eliza once again, this time joined John Lithgow and Roger Daltrey for a 3-week production of “My Fair Lady” at The Hollywood Bowl, singing for sold-out audiences of 20,000 people nightly. Darryl H Miller of the LA Times congratulated Melissa whose “…musical numbers were particularly enchanting, as she turned her floating, fluttering soprano to a giddy rendition of "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?" and a woozily romantic version of "I Could Have Danced All Night." [19]
  • Venus: From 28 – 30 March 1996, Melissa made one of the most talked about and lauded appearances of her generation at The City Center Encores! Directed by Leonard Foglia (Master Class), she played the titular role in Kurt Weill's “One Touch of Venus." The only performer in over twenty years of the famed Encores! series to win an award, Melissa was named Outstanding Actress in a Musical (1996 Lucille Lortel Award) and she continues to revive this role in concert. The reviews were “love letters” [20] from the likes of the New York Times - “suddenly, an overnight sensation. As Venus, the Roman goddess of love, Ms. Errico stole the show.” (Peter Marks),[21] “Melissa Errico is, in a word, divine.” (Ben Brantley) [22] and Backstage “Melissa Errico must be a magician as well as the loveliest, most exciting, most desirable goddess ever to appear among mortals” (David Rosenberg). The first complete recording of the score in history, starring Melissa, was released 13 May 2014 on Jay Records and was supported by a Barnes & Noble tour hosted by Ted Chapin. On October 7, 2013, Melissa sang the complete show in a filmed concert at Symphony Space with Le Train Bleu orchestra conducted by Weill specialist James Holmes to rapturous notices.
  • Dot/Marie: In 2002, Errico was selected by Stephen Sondheim himself to star as Dot/Marie in “Sunday in The Park with George” for The Sondheim Celebration at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.[23] The production ran at the Eisenhower Theater, 31 May – 28 June. Melissa took to the stage with cartwheels in the opening number and appeared undressed in a bathtub of bubbles for the “Color and Light” sequence, replacing Bernadette Peter's iconic vanity table with her own Trademark image reminiscent of Impressionist Era iconography. Sondheim made lyric changes to accommodate the bathtub theme, adding in the words "soap" and "more scent." Melissa's work was recognized with a Helen Hayes Award nomination for Leading Actress in a Musical. Charles Isherwood of Variety documented she was “…in radiant voice…is particularly fetching as the young Dot…more demure than Bernadette Peters’ prickly original” while Mark Eden Horowitz in the Sondheim review raved of her portrayal saying” …Errico was languorous, playful, sensual and seductive. Errico’s Marie was knowing, sharp and both proprietary and protective in her love of George and Elaine. The most winning surprise was a perfect Charleston accent – the seeming proof of her pedigree.” Melissa reprised this performance at Avery Fisher Music Hall soon after. In subsequent years, Sondheim has invited her to sing from it at his 75th Birthday Concert on March 21st, 2005 directed by Richard Maltby, Jr and in Mike Nichols starry two-night benefit "Short Talks on the Universe" directed by Daniel Sullivan, also with Kevin Kline and Bette Midler. In June 2014, President Emeritus Michael Kaiser celebrated his farewell as acting president of The Kennedy Center and requested Melissa sing excerpts from "Sunday..." at a prestigious event in The State Department.[24][25]
  • Candida – Directed by the Oscar-winning set & costume designer, director and author Tony Walton, Melissa took on the title role in the Irish Repertory Theater’s revival of George Bernard Shaw’s play. The production ran 24th February – 25th April in 2010. Achieving another Drama Desk Award nomination for her portrayal, Melissa was reviewed as “…flawless in her performance of the title role, being at once luminous, tough-minded, and deceptively romantic. It's Errico's job in the play to make us understand why every man in the room, in their own way, is in love with Candida, and she does so with a lovely, understated performance.” (Theatermania [26]) while Variety approved, saying “Errico brings so much depth and common sense to her much-desired character that one never questions why all the fuss is being made about her.” (Sam Thielman).[27]
  • Annie Savoy – based on the MGM movie, Melissa won the lead role of Annie in the world premiere of the new musical, “Bull Durham” which played 3 September – 5 October 2014 at the Alliance theater in Atlanta, Georgia. Starring with fellow Broadway star, Will Swenson, Melissa obtained critical acclaim – “As the titillating tutor, Errico lands and decisively delivers one of the best roles of her career.” (Frank Rizzo, Variety).[28]

Television[edit]

Maintaining a prolific theater career, Melissa has carved out an impressive track record in television, having worked with directors and creators such as Steven Soderbergh, Spike Lee, Tom Fontana and Darren Star. She was a series regular on Star's CBS' “Central Park West” and Darren went on to cast her in a recurring arc on "Miss Match." [29] Melissa has made strong guest appearances in internationally syndicated shows such as “Blue Bloods” (an intensely dramatic storyline as a Hasidic widow) and “The Good Wife” (both CBS) to her current work on Cinemax’s “The Knick” and “Billions” for Showtime.

She has sung on PBS, featured at The Kennedy Center singing from The King and I, as well as on many talk shows including Rosie O'Donnell, Caroline Rhea and Martha Stewart.[30][31][32]

As a parallel to her major TV commitments, Melissa has appeared in high-profile pilots for new shows:

  • The Spike Lee-helmed show, “M.O.N.Y” was produced by Tom Fontana for NBC in 2006 and charted a term of office for the Mayor of New York portrayed by Bobby Cannavale (Melissa played his wife).[35]
  • Produced by Kelsey Grammer, Melissa starred in her own NBC sitcom pilot entitled “Neurotic Tendencies” which told the story of a downtown actress’ relationship with an older man from the day they both hailed the same NYC taxi cab.[36]
  • "The Fighting Fitzgeralds" written and produced by Ed Burns, starring Brian Dennehy for CBS - Melissa once again was a series regular.[37]

Recording career[edit]

According to music critic Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Melissa Errico has the power to take a sumptuous Broadway ballad to the moon and back!” and she has sustained an illustrious recording career, garnering kudos for her cast soundtracks as well as solo albums. The three solo albums to date have emphasised Melissa's interest in what she has termed "new standards," drawing together songs by Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel and Judy Collins into the same collection as Gershwin and Rodgers & Hart. Melissa was first signed to a record label when she was in her twenties by Bruce Lundvall [39] (president of Blue Note Records). She has collaborated with Randy Newman, Arif Mardin and Rob Mathes, who first worked with Melissa when she was invited to be a soloist at The Songwriters Hall of Fame concert, singing the Barbra Streisand hit "Didn't We?" for Jimmy Webb's induction.[40] Her artistic collaboration with Michel Legrand is well known and began when Melissa appeared in Legrand’s Broadway debut, “Amour”. Legrand also wrote 15 original orchestrations of his own songs for her album “Legrand Affair,” which was recorded by Phil Ramone and included a song for a 100 piece symphony; the outcome was described by The Wall Street Journal as a “spectacularly beautiful album.” [41] Melissa's recording of a song from David Shire's new musical "Table" was aired in April 2015 on NPR radio on The Jonathan Schwartz show for WYNC.[42]
