KEN ARD: BLACK TIE...OR COME AS YOU ARE
BLACK TIE..OR COME AS YOU ARE
Broadway veteran Ken Ard returns to the cabaret stage after more than a decade across the pond. A noted star of Broadway shows such as Smokey Joes Cafe, Starlight Express, Song and Dance, and the original company of CATS, Ard left NYC in 2002. While living in Europe, Ard honed a cabaret persona which built ecstatic & loyal audiences from Amsterdam to Paris to Moscow. Now, accompanied by Mark Berman on the piano, Ard grabs a page from the American songbook to showcase his rich baritone voice, dapper style, and impeccable showmanship. Puppeteer Basil Twist is the special guest, and the intimate and eclectic Pangea, in the East Village, is the setting for Ard's musical homecoming.
