Performance Arts Series 66th & Broadway Presents Multi-Talented Mark Nadler on THIRTEEN and WLIW21 in October


Broadcast to coincide with the 26th New York Cabaret Convention


66th & Broadway, WNET’s performing arts series, which showcases  the town’s thriving cabaret scene, returns with two new editions to its lineup: 66th & Broadway: Mark Nadler and 66th & Broadway: Frank Wildhorn & Friends.

Taped in front of an audience at the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center, premiering on Thursday October 1 at 9 p.m. on WLIW21 and Sunday, October 4 at 7 p.m. on THIRTEEN, the first of the two new editions features internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and comedian Mark Nadler performing songs from his Crazy 1961 cabaret act.

Nadler’s 1961 is comprised entirely of songs from the year he was born, from Broadway’s “Once in a Lifetime,” “I Believe in You,” and “Sail Away,” to Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” to Hollywood’s “Moon River.” Nadler accompanies himself on the piano, backed by a group of accomplished musicians. The performance also includes an impressive marathon medley.

New York Times music critic Stephen Holden recently declared “Mr. Nadler, with his talent and boundless drive, has earned my vote for the title of Mr. Show Business.”

Nadler has performed at New York City’s Town Hall and at nearly every significant night-club in New York City including Sardi’s, 54 Below and The Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel as well as other prestigious venues around the country. Abroad, Mark has played in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Israel and Australia.
