Mark Nadler, KT Sullivan
The first cabaret show that knocked my sox off when I began hanging out in New York City around the turn of this century was the award-winning Off-Broadway hit American Rhapsody. It extolled the words and music of first-generation New Yorkers who became immortal because their immigrant parents had an upright piano hauled through the front window of their second story apartment on the Lower East Side. It was meant for their elder boy, Iras use, but it appealed more to his younger brother, George. You know the story. Ira turned out to be a wizard with words and rhymes and George composed his way up to the New York Philharmonic.
In American Rhapsody, the Gershwins were celebrated by two equally talented immigrants from the Midwest: Kathleen Sullivan who grew up in Boggy Depot, Oklahoma in a musical family of eight children and Waterloo, Iowas Mark Nadler, who according to him had been carefully raised.
My husband Alvin was even more enchanted with American Rhapsody than I was, and I was plenty enchanted with KT and Mark! Alvin saw American Rhapsody four times and paid full price for every ticket. Greater love hath no accountant/lawyer. American Rhapsody raised Mark and KT to unbelievable heights when World Class Cartoonist Al Hirshfields caricature of them appeared in the New York Times.
In the ensuing years we have followed Mark and KT from one watering hole to another as they celebrated the lives and works of Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Dorothy Fields, Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne, have reveled watching and listening to them become international stars.
KT Sullivan has been a headliner for the past two decades in New York at Feinsteins/54Below, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Birdland and on PBS. She also stared at The Pheasantry in London, and has been showcased at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, the Spoleto Festival, The Chichester Festival and The Adelaide Festival down under. Thats the short list.
Mark Nadler is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist, tap-dancer and comedian. He was one of Three Singular Sensations, the other two being Marvin Hamlish and Martin Short. Hes performed with symphony orchestras, been the recipient of too many to count Manhattan Association of Cabarets, Backstage Bistro, New York Nightlife and Bay Area Outer Critics Circle Awards and in 2015 became Broadway World Editors Choice for Entertainer of the Year. For me, hes the Entertainer of any Year.
Recently, KT, now the artistic director of the Mabel Mercer Foundation, realized that she and Mark hadnt done a show together in six years, a lapse that needed correcting. But what Broadway leading light should they celebrate? The answer was obvious. The closing night of the 2018 Cabaret Convention was a celebration of Alan Jay Lerners 100th Birthday. KT and Mark decided to add their own celebration of Lerners lyrics at The Green Room 42, Broadways newest intimate concert venue and supper club, two nights later. KT and Mark presented their hit show Almost Like Being In Love, and it occurred on Sunday, October 14 at 9:30 PM in front of a packed house in which cabaret royalty and ardent fans joined Mark in celebrating another significant birthday, Marks Fifty Seventh! How ardent were his fans? I sat next to Bud from Baltimore who always comes to New York when Mark performs. KT and Mark also celebrated their 25 years of friendship.
They were a sight for sore eyes and a sound for sore ears. KT, looking younger than springtime in a slinky red gownrecalled her first impression of Mark. He was the most talented person I ever met. One of the highlights of the evening was their retelling of a journey to San Francisco theyd taken to fill a booking. She was staying at the Fairmount. Theyd booked me in a room at the Days Inn. Their story was hilarious as they talked over each other, like a musical George Burns and Gracie Allen.
